Combining a cinéma vérité style, documentary footage, and a human drama centering on the political turmoil of the late 1960s, Haskell Wexler’s Medium Cool is a unique document of the times. John Cassellis (Robert Forster) is a hardened TV news cameraman who manages to keep his distance while he captures daring footage of a nation in the throes of violent change. He maintains this professional detachment when he covers the social unrest in Chicago surrounding the 1968 Democratic National Convention. But, when he discovers that the TV network has been quietly cooperating with the FBI, the enraged Cassellis realizes that he too must join the fight against the establishment. Not available on any streaming platforms, you don’t want to miss your chance to see this essential film on the big screen!
