San Francisco Good Times: As the Vietnam war dragged on and Richard Nixon was elected to his first term as President, a group of people in San Francisco began publishing an "underground" newspaper called the San Francisco Good Times in the belief that out of the ferment of dissent a new community based on new ways of living and cooperation was taking shape. The paper was to be the voice of this community and a motive force in its creation. This film is a chronicle of people who worked on the paper and events they lived through and covered. The people who worked together to produce the paper went on to form a commune. In November 1972 the Good Times commune stopped publishing the newspaper. Highlights include a Black Panther demonstration in support of Huey Newton; stills of public nudity and marijuana smoking; an interview with Bill Graham; outtakes from the song "Sweet Marijuana"; Pete Townshend of "The Who" interview; the "People's Park" land squatting experiment that ended in armed confrontation; herbiculture; astrological column written by The Berkeley Astrology Guild; performance outtakes from The Floating Lotus Opera Company; interview with Timothy Leary; the formation of the Good Times commune ; San Francisco street life & happenings; members of Good Times arrested and put in prison; and more

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
