Medium Cool (1969)

Directed by Haskell Wexler. Cast: Robert Forster, Verna Bloom, Peter Bonerz, Marianna Hill, Harold Blankenship. Filmed against the backdrop of the 1968 Democratic National Convention and ensuing riots, this story is about a television cameraman who chooses not to get personally concerned about the ugliness he must film each day for his station. But the hate and hypocrisy command his attentions at last, and he becomes increasingly involved in the realities he finds with his camera. 111 min. ; Credits and other information from the Internet Movie Database
