Movie Night: Underground

Sunday February 10th 2013, Movie night: Underground (by Emile de Antonio, with Kathy Boudin, Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, Jeff Jones , USA, 1975, Documentary, 85 min). Door open at 20pm, film begins at 21:00.

The Weather Underground Organization (WUO), commonly known as the Weather Underground, the Weatherman, was an American radical left organization in the 70’s. Using much footage from the time mixed with the interview of people of the Weather Underground, the film constructs a complex narrative of the militant organization. The Weathermen are connecting the issues of that time (and still topics today) with their struggle. They talk about the initial disconnection and later solidarity with Black Panther movement, racism and whiteness, anti-militarism, sexism and feminism, the question of militant means, in the revolutionary context as perceived in that time. They reveal their internal issues, conflicts and contradictions. They talk about their perspectives of an armed revolution and as underground city guerilla group.
