Chicago 10 official trailer


Chicago 10: Speak Your Peace is a 2007 American animated documentary written and directed by Brett Morgen that tells the story of the Chicago Eight. The film features the voices of Hank Azaria, Dylan Baker, Nick Nolte, Mark Ruffalo, Roy Scheider, Liev Schreiber, James Urbaniak, and Jeffrey Wright in an animated reenactment of the trial based on transcripts and rediscovered audio recordings. It also contains archival footage of Abbie Hoffman, David Dellinger, William Kunstler, Jerry Rubin, Bobby Seale, Tom Hayden, and Leonard Weinglass, and of the protest and riot itself. The title is drawn from a quote by Rubin, who said, "Anyone who calls us the Chicago Seven is a racist. Because you're discrediting Bobby Seale. You can call us the Chicago Eight, but really we're the Chicago Ten, because our two lawyers went down with us."

    Chicago 10 (film) Chicago 10 Movie Review Film Summary 2008 Roger Ebert

    On the eve of the Afghanistan War, director Brett Morgen was spurred to create Chicago 10 in response to what he saw as the lack of active American opposition to the war. Morgen wanted to make the anti-Vietnam War protests of the 1960s resonate with contemporary youth, which influenced both the film's animation style and its anachronistic soundtrack, the latter of which features modern artists such as Black Sabbath, Rage Against the Machine, the Beastie Boys, and Eminem. The animated courtroom sequences were also informed by Jerry Rubin's description of the trial as a "cartoon show."

    Release

    The film premiered January 18, 2007 at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. It later premiered at Silverdocs, the AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival in Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. The film opened in limited release in the United States on February 29, 2008. It was aired nationally on the PBS program, Independent Lens, on October 22, 2008.
