Portland Anti Capitalist Action Presents
Five Weather Underground members met with a film crew to produce "Underground" in 1975. Around two hours, the film contains conversations 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 Malcom X, Martin Luther King JR, Rapp Brown, Fidel Castro, and Fred Hampton appear throughout the film.
"We're going to retake this country in the streets," the Weathermen 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.
