NEW 4K RESTORATION!
USA – 1979 – 97 MIN – COLOUR - FEATURE - IN ENGLISH
A FILM BY GLENN SILBER & BARRY ALEXANDER BROWN

Nominated for an Academy Award and widely considered one of the most important political films ever made, THE WAR AT HOME vividly chronicles the anti-war protest movement of the 1960's and 70's. The film provides an illuminating look at the home front of the Vietnam War - the war that students and other ani-war dissidents waged on America's political system, military and notions of patriotism.

Through a powerful combination of rare archival footage and interviews with students, community leaders, Vietnam veterans, and participants from all points of view, THE WAR AT HOME shows how the anti-war movement grew into a genuine people's revolt in tandem with the escalation of war in Vietman.

A FILM BY NATHANIEL KAHN

Basquiat paintings regularly fetch tens of millions of dollars, and the recent sale of a little-known Da Vinci topped $450 million—but what forces are driving the white-hot art market? Who assigns and who pays these astronomical sums? What currency adequately measures art’s value? The Price of Everything leads us into a rarefied labyrinth of galleries, studios, and auction houses to wrestle with these questions and explore what society loses and gains when art becomes a rich person’s commodity.
