No Mall Movies! (Chicago Cinema)
12 July 2013
Film: MEDIUM COOL (dir. Haskell Wexler, 1969, U.S.)
Forum: Film Studies Center (Logan Center)                  Format: 16mm
Observations: This film was programmed as a free show by South Side Projections, as part of “AfriCOBRA in Chicago,” and was well-attended (mostly full house).  They projected an excellent print of this filmed-in-Chicago classic that I had, up to now, never manged to see. I now need to go back and read how the filmmaker was able to so seamlessly intercut staged footage of the 1968 demonstrations in Grant Park with apparently true documentary footage.
