Storyline

 

“The War at Home” with Director Glenn Silber in Person Friday May 5th, 6th & 7th

Co-Producer/Director Glenn Silber will present his 1979 Academy Award Nominated documentary THE WAR AT HOME as the first film in Jean Cocteau Cinema’s newest film series “Films of Resistance” on Friday, May 5th at 7:00pm.

Widely considered one of the most important political films ever made, THE WAR AT HOME vividly chronicles the antiwar protest movement of the 1960s and 70s.

The film provides an illuminating look at the impact of the war in Vietnam on the home front using the events of one American town, Madison, Wisconsin, as a microcosm of the antiwar movement that students and other anti-war protestors waged on America’s political system, military, and notions of patriotism.  Through a powerful combination of rare archival footage and interviews with students, community leaders, Vietnam veterans, and participants from all points of view, THE WAR AT HOME shows how the anti-war movement grew into a genuine people’s revolt in response to the escalation of the war.

Director Glenn Silber — A two-time Academy Award Nominee (and recent resident to Santa Fe) will introduce THE WAR AT HOME and follow with Q&A with the audience on the weekend screening of the film Fri, May 5th  , Sat. May 6th & Sun, May 7th.  The Q&A on Friday, May 5th will be moderated by Adam Horowitz.
