Rating:
R

The War at Home is a vivid documentary of the anti-war movement that centered in Madison, Wisconsin during the Vietnam War. Filmed by acclaimed documentarians Glenn Silber and Barry Alexander Brown, the film features previously unseen footage of some of the most harrowing events that occurred during the anti-war protests. Focused on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, The War at Home reveals the passionate protests launched by students against the government and its war, as well as the clashes the protests created. One of the most prominent events depicted in the film is the Sterling Hall Bombing, an explosion that was intended to destroy the Army Math Research Center. Instead, the bomb created even more destruction to the building than originally intended and killed physics researcher Robert Fassnacht, who was unaffiliated with the Army Math Research Center. The War at Home demonstrates that the conflicts faced at home during a time of war can sometimes be just as heated and tragic as those found in the battlefields. The world at war has never seemed as polarizing as it is revealed to be in this gripping documentary.
