Description

"Hello. I am going to
read a
declaration of a
state of war… Within the next
14 days we will attack a
symbol or institution of American injustice." – Bernardine Dohrn

Thirty years ago, with these words, a
group of young American radicals called The Weathermen announced their intention to
overthrow the U.S.
government. Fueled by outrage
over the Vietnam
War and racism in
America, they went underground during the 1970s,
bombing targets across the country
that they felt symbolized "the real violence" that the U.S.
government and capitalist
power were wreaking throughout the world.
>From pitched battles with police on Chicago’s
city streets, to
bombing the U.S.
Capitol building, to
breaking acid-guru Timothy Leary out of prison, this carefully organized
clandestine network attempted to
incite a
national revolution, while successfully evading one of the largest
FBI manhunts in
history.

One of the top
documentaries of the year,
this award-winning film interweaves extensive archival material with modern-day
interviews to
explore the incredible
story of "The Weather Underground." As former members reflect candidly
about the idealistic
passion that drove them to
"bring the war
home," they paint a
compelling portrait of troubled and revolutionary
times, with unexpected and often
striking connections to
the current
world situation.
