Movie Info

From the young anti-war protesters in America to the death of Che Guevara and the rise of leaders like Fidel Castro and Mao Tse-Tung, this documentary examines the rise and fall of the lefty movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The first segment delves into the beginnings of this liberal faction, focusing on 1967, when anti-Vietnam fervor sweeps the United States and invigorates the political debate. In part two, the disintegration of the movement, dubbed the "new left," is laid out.
