Medium Cool (Haskell Wexler, 1969, 35mm, 111 mins)

Robert Forster stars as a TV news cameraman at Chicago’s 1968 Democratic National Convention in what Vincent Canby called “a film of tremendous visual impact, a kind of cinematic Guernica, a picture of America in the process of exploding into fragmented bits of hostility, suspicion, fear, and violence.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

The “Art & Protest” film series is presented by the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library and the Yale Film Archive in conjunction with the exhibition “Art, Protest, & the Archives” on view at the Beinecke through January 7, 2024.
