Dir Haskell Wexler
With Robert Forster, Verna Bloom, Peter Bonerz
Haskell Wexler’s innovative docu-fiction about the romantic and working life of a disillusioned TV cameraman plunges us right into the maelstrom of 1960s America. With an extended sequence shot right in the middle of the riots surrounding the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Medium Cool provides a vivid cinematic snapshot of a society in turmoil.
