An Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary, the powerful and moving 1979 feature The War at Home uses the ten-year history of antiwar resistance in one American town, Madison, Wisconsin, as a microcosm of the national Antiwar Movement in the 1960s and early 1970s, as it grew from a small core of activists to a mass resistance movement that ultimately helped bring down two powerful U.S. Presidents and end the U.S. war in Vietnam. Stereotype-busting interviews with student activists, police, Vietnam vets and others illuminate a trove of rare archival film, from the earliest antiwar protest in 1963 to the violent confrontation against the Dow Chemical Co., producers of napalm, in 1967; to the bombing of the Army Math Research Center in 1970; to the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam in 1973. This vital work of politically-charged non-fiction is newly restored in 4K (by IndieCollect) and re-released now, as timely today as it was nearly 40 years ago, ready to inspire and energize a new generation. Produced and directed by Glenn Silber and Barry Alexander Brown (editor of Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman and Do the Right Thing).
