Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Students from the University of California at Berkeley march to the Oakland Army Terminal in 1966 to protest the Vietnam War in this documentary by Jerry Stoll. Film footage from Vietnam shows the extent of the disturbing violence of the conflict. The youth movement protesting the war contrasts with the many defense plants in the area and the fact that soldiers arrive and depart from the port on a daily basis. Also adding to the social volatility is the fact that a high number of Asian-Americans live in the San Francisco region. Janet Pugh narrates, and The Grateful Dead, Jon Hendricks, and Virgil Gonsalves provide the music.
