Not to be confused with The Weather Underground (2003), this is Emile de Antonio’s 1976 documentary about the radical antiwar group the Weather Underground, made with cinematographer Haskell Wexler and editor Mary Lampson. Back then Billy Ayers, Kathy Boudin, Bernardine Dohrn, Jeff Jones, and Cathy Wilkerson were still on the run and had to appear partly incognito. It’s been years since I’ve seen this, but at the time I found it provocative as well as informative. 88 min. (JR)
