"America Is Hard to See" offers de Antonio’s take on the 1968 Democratic primaries, “seen from the POV of liberals and Eugene McCarthy.” The film addresses the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy and the chaos of the Chicago Democratic Convention, attempting to explain, in de Antonio’s words, the “failure of liberal peace politics, and why.” In the satirical compilation "Millhouse: A White Comedy", Richard Milhous Nixon proves the perfect target for de Antonio’s scathing eye. Critics, however, have complimented the film as richer than caricature and surprisingly sympathetic.

$5 general, students and seniors. Program tickets are available at the Museum (no surcharge) or through http://www.sfmoma.org/tickets (surcharge applies). Double features: films offered on the same date are included in one ticket.
