Archival footage, animation, and music are used to look back at the eight anti-war protesters who were put on trial following the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
Politics aside, the filmmaking here was somewhat revolutionary. Animated reinactments of court transcripts plus archival audio and film make for a riviting retelling of the protests and trial surrounding the 1968 Democratic convention.
An interesting soundtrack with a blend of period and contemporary music. It felt somewhat disingenuous to hear The Beastie Boys or Rage Against the Machine against the grainy newsreel footage of the late 1960's.
Overall, a compelling retelling on the 40th anniversary of those events.
