Sam Green, Bill Siegel
USA 2003
93 min

Thirty years ago, a group of young American radicals announced their intention to overthrow the U.S. government. Sam Green and Bill Siegel have taken on a big, prickly historical subject and captured its complexity with an immediacy that is both breathtaking and heartbreaking. In The Weather Underground, former Underground members speak publicly about the idealistic passion that drove them to «bring the war home» and the trajectory that placed them on the FBIs «most wanted» -list. A thrilling mix of vintage footage and penetrating interviews with ex-Weathermen (and women) some who have moved on to normal lives as teachers and other «straight» jobs, others serving life sentences in prison, most of them haunted by, proud of and sharply thoughtful about their days as revolutionaries and lonely fugitives. The Weather Underground is powerful, essential history for our times. (Tod Booth)
