The Weather Underground

The Weather Underground

Directed by Sam Green

Over forty years ago a group of young American radicals called The Weathermen announced their intention to overthrow the U.S. government. Fueled by outrage over the Vietnam War and racism in America, they went underground during the 1970's, bombing targets across the country that they felt symbolized "the real violence" that the U.S. government and capitalist power were wreaking throughout the world.

This powerful Academy Award-nominated documentary traces the rise and fall of a notorious 1970's radical group who declared war on the U.S. government.

Violence, when not perpetrated by the powers that be, is either categorized as criminal or insane. To my mind, violence by any body, including the powers that be, is both. Sad that so many of the issues of the time are still relevant today and violence is still not the answer.
