After a decade making short films and participating in activism during the ’60s, filmmaker Jon Jost was ready to make a breakthrough—a tour-de-force work capable of impacting the world. It was the 1970s. The Watergate hearings had just begun. Working with a shoestring budget and drawing on his experiences as an activist—two years in federal custody for draft resisting—Jost created a film in the mold of a State of the Nation address from the perspective of American radicalism.
