Newsreel ‘68

In recognition of the extraordinary counter-cultural movements that swept the globe throughout 1968, Lightbox Film Center present three separate film programs by the late-1960s activist filmmaker collective Newsreel, curated and co-presented by Third World Newsreel (which grew out of the New York chapter of the group). Together, these programs sketch a panoramic view of the political and social tumult of the era, with footage capturing the Democratic National Convention protests, the activities of the Black Panthers and Young Lords, a film produced by the Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Viet Nam, and much more.
