Rebels with a Cause
I managed to watch Rebels with a Cause last night, one of the lesser-known documentaries from Zeitgeist Films. It features several interviews with key Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) members, and some archival footage, including a black-and-white shot panning across a 1967 rally with Phil Ochs performing (not seen elsewhere). It also more Phil Ochs songs than the typical 1960s documentary, with "I Ain't Marching Anymore," "Draft Dodger Rag," "I'm Going to Say It Now," and "The War Is Over" punctuating the soundtrack. Definitely worth watching to hear the perspectives and views of various participants in this important group.
