Rush to Judgment, 1966, 98 min.
In the Year of the Pig, 1968, 103 min.
A seminal refutation of the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Rush to Judgment offers no definitive conclusions, but it simply and concisely reveals the contradictions and assumptions in the report—and provides a cool-headed defense for Lee Harvey Oswald. The style de Antonio employs is radically plain and raw, allowing the viewer to consider the comments of the 26 individuals interviewed without aesthetic distractions. Made with attorney Mark Lane, Rush to Judgment remains a benchmark for investigations of the assassination. Perhaps the most radical film ever nominated for an Academy Award, In the Year of the Pig examines the historical roots of the Vietnam War and argues polemically for its end. The film’s political provocation roused the interest and scrutiny of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, who developed an extensive file on de Antonio. This screening features a recently restored print.
