MORE FILM: In keeping with the theme of politics and film, we’re giving you a heads up that there’s a program called “Spirit of ’68: Protest Films for the Decade of Revolution” tonight at the Silent Movie Theatre at 8 pm. Curated by Jack Stevenson, the short films “each describe a different aspect of this ‘decade of disillusion,’ from the brooding working-class existentialism of Assembly Line (1961) to the hyper-patriotism of a society in deep conflict with itself in America’s In Real Trouble (1968), the bloody riots of People’s Park (1969) to the social, political and pop culture turmoil captured in the impressionistic Love It/Leave It (1970).
