Festival : folk music at Newport, 1963-1966( Visual )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before Woodstock and Monterey Pop, there was Festival. From 1963 through 1966, Murray Lerner visited the annual Newport Folk Festival to document a thriving, idealistic musical movement as it reached its peak as a popular phenomenon. Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, the Staple Singers, Pete Seeger, Son House, and Peter, Paul and Mary were just a few of the legends who shared the stage at Newport, treating audiences to a range of folk music that encompassed the genre's roots in blues, country, and gospel as well as its newer flirtations with rock and roll. Shooting in gorgeous black and white, Lerner juxtaposes performances with snapshot interviews with artists and their fans, weaving footage from four years of the festival into an intimate record of a pivotal time in music--and in American culture at large"--Container
The murder of Fred Hampton( Visual )

6 editions published between 1971 and 2007 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mike Gray started out to make a film about the Black Panther Party, but on Dec. 4, 1969, the Chicago police raided a Panther apartment and his film became a documentary about the murder of Fred Hampton, chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party. The film footage of the raid directly contradicted the State Attorney's version of the raid and so filmmakers and Panthers came together to prove that Hampton had been the designated target of the violent, punitive raid. The film's inquiry pursues official spokesmen and traps them in their attempts at covering up an orchestrated assassination
Don't look back( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The legendary documentarian finds Dylan in London during his 1965 tour, which would be his last as an acoustic artist and marked a turning point in his career. In this wildly entertaining vision of one of the twentieth century's greatest artists thrust into the spotlight, Dylan is surrounded by teen fans; gets into heated philosophical jousts with journalists; and kicks back with fellow musicians Joan Baez, Donovan, and Alan Price
American revolution 2( Visual )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1960s was defined by a common effort to fight against injustice. Mike Gray, a Chicago filmmaker, used his camera to document the politics of the streets from the riots in the social upheaval, to the rising of two prolific groups fighting prejudice

Janis : the way she was by Janis Joplin( Visual )

4 editions published between 1974 and 1995 in English and French and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The short, electrifying career of singer Janis Joplin (1943-1970) is chronicled in this 96-minute documentary. Using family photos, interviews and concert clips, a fairly thorough portrait is painted of the dynamic, self-destructive R&B singer. With Joplin, what you saw was what you got: she is as volcanic and unpredictable off-stage as on. Janis Joplin's family had a lot of input in this production; thus, Joplin's music is given precedence over her private demons and her fabled substance abuse

Indiqué sur la jaquette : "The murder of Fred Hampton : Chicago 1968.

Une douzaine d'officiers de police débarque dans l'appartement d'Hampton et le suppriment ainsi que son frère de lutte, Mark Clark. Arrivés sur les lieux du crime quelques heures plus tard, les deux réalisateurs sont brutalement aspirés dans une enquête qui sera le seul rempart tangible face à la déferlante des médias et des allégations de la police. American revolution 2 : Chicago 1968 : la ville accueille La Convention national démocrate. Les émeutes qui suivent font se croiser deux groupes disparates, les "Black Panthers" et les "Young patriots", un groupement d'activistes se définissant politiquement comme blancs, pauvres et "du sud".

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
