The Weather Underground (2003)
Emerging from the anti-Vietnam War movement of the late '60s, the radical Weather Underground saw violence as a means to an end--the overthrow of the federal government--and was responsible for a series of bombings, including one at the U.S. Capitol, that forced its members into hiding for years. Hear from former Weathermen Bill Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn and Mark Rudd about their lives, their politics, and the consequences of their actions in this acclaimed documentary. Lili Taylor narrates. 92 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: Spanish; biographies; audio commentary; featurette; excerpt from "Underground" (1974).
