  1. Hey, sorry so last minute. Joe's photos inspired me to show these films tomorrow night as part of an on-going documentary screening series I co-organize...

    If anyone know's Joe personally, please give him the heads up!

    Special Double Feature

    CRISIS: Behind a Presidential Commitment (1963) 52 minutes

    At once intimate and engaging, Crisis is the first and only film ever shot candidly that features a U.S. president (Kennedy and his brother, Attorney General Bobby) making decisions during a crisis. With a revolutionary new filmmaking style that allowed for multiple hand-held cameras, documentarian Robert Drew and his four-team crew captured the stand off in Montgomery, Alabama, one of the most astonishing Civil Rights confrontations of the 20th century.

    DON'T BANK ON AMERIKA (1970) 45 minutes

    An up-close view of the 1970 UCSB student uprisings, known widely for the burning of the Bank of America in Isla Vista.
