Subject: "Underground" documentary/Attica

1) Has anyone seen the documentary done in 1975 called "Underground"? It
was filmed by Haskell Wexler and is an interview of 5 members of the
Weather Underground. Hearing those voices 20 years ago, talking about
revolution...what struck me was how young they sounded (and in 1975 I was
22) and while they were somewhat dogmatic, they showed true belief. I keep
trying to understand what made some of us go in that direction and some go
in a different one, and this helped a bit to understand.
2) During the documentary, there was mention of Attica and it reminded me
that the 25th anniversary of the ATtica rebellion is in a few months. Does
anyone know of anything being done to commemorate this event?
