Sam Green: The Weather Underground
Sam Greene’s Creative Capital Project, The Weather Underground, will screen as part of a retrospective of his inquisitive and playful body of work at the Wexner Center for the Arts.
This feature-length documentary film (co-directed with Bill Siegel) follows the rise and fall of the Weather Underground–a group of several hundred young women and men who tried to violently overthrow the American government during the late 1960s and 70s. For almost a decade, they lived underground and evaded one of the largest FBI manhunts in US history. In this film, former members of the Weather Underground—including Bernardine Dohrn, Mark Rudd and a number of others—speak candidly about their own thoughts and experiences, many for the first time ever.
