The seasons change( Visual )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

On December 15, 1968, The seasons change was screened in response to, What trees do they plant?, a City of Chicago film made to combat he image of police brutality during the August, 1968 Democratic Convention. Bill Jersey and a sizeable group of other activist filmmakers pooled their footage which had been shot at the convention. They called themselves Documentary Interlock. Their goal was to produce a film that would counter the "official Chicago" version of the convention. As Jersey recounts it, they began with about 60 filmmakers that were committed to the project. As the potential for any funding dwindled, so did the number of committed filmmakers. One of the very few left was Howard Alk. Alk focused on the interviews with people who were assaulted by police during the convention. Although you'll see interviews with Allen Ginsberg and Rennie Davis, Alk singled out more mainstream individuals who were there to peacefully march against the war, or who were there simply to observe the convention. Howard intercut their on-camera recollections with footage of their brutal arrests
