Chicago 7 debuts on Netflix today

In 1968, a peaceful protest at the Democratic National Convention turned into a violent confrontation with the police and the US National Guard. The protest organizers (including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale) have been charged with conspiracy and incitement to disorder.

The case trial has become one of the most famous in history. With a screenplay and direction by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin, The Chicago 7 debuts on the Netflix platform today.

Chicago 7 is already on the Netflix platform

Based on a true story, this film follows the demonstration against the Vietnam War that interrupted the Democratic Party Congress in 1968. There were several clashes between the police and the participants. In total, sixteen people were indicted for this act.

This is actually the second big movie of the year, after Detachment Da Blood, to bring a plot that gives space to the black movement in the context of the Vietnam War. Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, of The Social Network, as I have previously reported, it is based on real events and brings some very historical and political discussions that are very present in the trailer (here), which means the film can be even more incisive.
