    This video examines the production of Haskell Wexler's classic film, a docu-drama set amidst the street riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, and the film's social and aesthetic importance in American cinema. In addition to showing behind-the-scenes footage and numerous outtakes, this documentary features interviews with actors Robert Forster, Verna Bloom and Peter Bonerz, editor Paul Golding, cameramen Ron Vargas and Michael Margulies, producer Steven North, Chicago advisor Studs Terkel, and writer-director-cinematographer Haskell Wexler, who also discusses his battle with Paramount Pictures and the censors.
