USA | 100 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Glenn Silber & Barry Alexander Brown

“The War at Home” tells the story of the impact of the war in Vietnam on one American town – and scrutinizes how the Midwestern city of Madison, Wisconsin was transformed into a battleground where American foreign policy in Vietnam and American values at home were challenged and changed.

Over twenty interviews with antiwar activists, university and police officials, Vietnam veterans and others illuminate rare archival film footage of ‘60s political activism to weave an eyewitness portrait of the antiwar movement in Madison. The state capitol and home of the University of Wisconsin, Madison was the scene of some of the most violent antiwar demonstrations of the Vietnam Era.

"As a chronicle of consciousness-raising resistance methods, "The War at Home" is illuminating." -Robert Abele (Los Angeles Times)
