About the Film
Written and directed by Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture), Chicago 10 presents contemporary history with a forced perspective, mixing bold and original animation with extraordinary archival footage that explores the build-up to and unraveling of the Chicago Conspiracy Trial. Set to the music of revolution, then and now, Chicago 10 is a parable of hope, courage and ultimate victory, the story of young Americans speaking out and taking a stand in the face of an oppressive and armed government.
Speak Your Peace
In 1968, people took to the streets to tell the country's leaders and the media how they felt about the war in Vietnam, civil rights and other critical issues. Today, the same spirit of activism is channeled. The Social Action Campaign for Chicago 10 encourages citizens to voice their opinions on key issues and stand up for what they believe in, to exercise their right to vote and encourage those around them to register to vote, and to advocate for voter protection.
