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 MATT TYRNAUER

Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism--a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club’s hallowed threshold, a feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.
