The definitive classic documentary on what really happened @ Berkeley that started a world-wide peace movement of the 60's and 70's. This is history that was documented and recorded as it happened. Politics gone bad and young people rising up and doing something about it. I read somewhere that "history doesn't say good-bye, it says, see you later. This doc-movie, should be required, in my opinion, as American history.
