May 17

(Robert Kramer, US, 1969, 16mm, 128 min)

In an alternate present, the United States has invaded Mexico, and various groups fight against the rising tide of fascism through agit-prop filmmaking and increasingly violent guerrilla actions. Despite its high concept, Ice keeps its feet planted firmly in the underground, presenting verité scenes of activists passionately planning, self-critiquing, and splitting apart in the apartments, streets, and basements of New York City. Beautifully filmed in stark, 16mm B&W, Ice remains an evocative portrait of the mechanics (and potential pitfalls) of revolution.
