MEDIUM COOL, by Haskell Wexler (USA 1968)
It takes place in Chicago  in the summer of 1968. It was notable for Wexler’s use of cinema vérité -style documentary  filmmaking techniques, as well as for combining fictional and non-fictional content. As viewers we are presented with issues such as violence  as spectacle, political and social discontent, extreme racism , and class divisions. The film is constantly juggling documentary footage with feature film image. Among his sources, Wexler uses footage from military training camps in Illinois  for military troops preparing for planned demonstrations by students and anti-war activists during the Democratic National Convention  later that summer.“ (wikipedia)
