I've seen "Berkeley in the Sixties" but not "The Torch" Is there any place
I can view it in the NYC area?

Horowitz "Student" ends in 1962. His "Destructive Generation" picks up a
few years later. The inbetween years are not covered. 1963-64 seems to be a
missing year in the Sixties literature on the Bay Area. I've found stuff on
before and after, but that turbulent year is covered only in the movie. So far
I haven't found a book chapter, a dissertation or even an article in the Reader
s Guide for that year. I don't have time to do original archival and newspaper
research on that year, but if anyone else does this for their own purposes, I
would love to read their work and cite them!
