The Sixth Side of the Pentagon NR

Amazon Instant Video

(1) IMDb 7.2/10

On October 21, 1967, over 100,000 protestors gathered in Washington, D.C., for the Mobilization to End the War in Vietnam. It was the largest protest gathering yet, and it brought together a wide cross-section of liberals, radicals, hippies, and Yippies. Che Guevara had been killed in Bolivia only two weeks previously, and, for many, it was the transition from simply marching against the war, to taking direct action to try to stop the 'American war machine.' Norman Mailer wrote about the events in Armies of the Night. French filmmaker Chris Marker, leading a team of filmmakers, was also there, and made THE SIXTH SIDE OF THE PENTAGON.

As someone who was there --
The footage captures many of the day's (but, unfortunately, not the night's) highlights. However, the voice-over narration is both informative and annoying. It helps place the events being filmed in a chronological context that makes sense of the day. But the didactic gloss on the demonstrators' politcs is sometimes condescending.
