Sam Green introduced a new generation to the radical 1960s group the Weathermen with his 2002 film The Weather Underground, but de Antonio first highlighted the group in 1976’s Underground. The film features clandestine interviews with the group’s elusive members, as well as footage from works by Saul Landau, Chris Marker, Third World Newsreel, and Jane Fonda’s Indochina Peace Campaign, creating a concise overview of the period’s social unrest and activism. In the King of Prussia turns its attention on the Plowshares 8, a Catholic pacifist group led by Father Daniel Berrigan, and its 1980 action against a General Electric nuclear weapons plant in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. Shot on videotape and intended as an organizing tool for the nuclear-freeze movement, this film departs from de Antonio’s signature compilation technique. Filmmaker Green introduces the program.

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