Five Weather Underground members met with a film crew to produce "Underground" in 1975. Around two hours, the film contains conversation with the Weather while they were still underground. "People make history" said Billy Ayres. Cathy Wilerson, Kathy Boudin, Bernardine Dohrn, Jeff Jones, and Billy Ayres talk about how they came to consider themselves revolutionaries and followed up their belief with armed struggle against the U.S. Archival footage of the "Days of Rage" is shown, along with other clips of revolutionaries and insurrections within the U.S. Speeches by Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Junior, Rapp Brown, Fidel Castro, and Fred Hampton appear throughout the film. "We're going to retake this county in the streets," the Weatherman said.
This film is not to be confused with the recently released "The Weather Underground." Underground is filmed during a revolutionary struggle, not afterwards when retrospect has blurred perspective.

In October 1969 hundreds of young people, clad in football helmets and wielding lead pipes, marched through an upscale Chicago shopping district, pummeling parked cars and smashing shop windows in their path.
This was the first demonstration of the Weather Underground's "Days of Rage." Outraged by the Vietnam War and racism in America, the organization waged a low-level war against the U.S. government through much of the 1970s, bombing the Capitol building, breaking Timothy Leary out of prison, and evading one of the largest FBI manhunts in history.
