Movie Summary

Director:
Brett Morgen , Brett Morgan
Released:
2008
Rating:
R
From Brett Morgen, director of The Kid Stays in the Picture, comes a highly-stylized and wildly original documentary film, chronicling the real-life events surrounding the anti-war protest of the 1968 Democratic National Convention held in Chicago and the charismatic protest organizers brought to trial by the city. Told through a visually-arresting animation style and a bold use of archival footage and music, Chicago 10 channels yesterday???s voices for peace in a manner that speaks peace for today.
