Shot April 7 while watching Another Look at the Miami Convention, a film made by the Women’s Video News Service for Manhattan cable television.
A group of people singing a protest song at the ’72 DNC in Miami: “I am tired of fuckers fucking me over.”
According to the Institute of Contemporary Art: “Another Look was shot using Portapaks at the 1972 Democratic National Convention by the Women’s Video News Service for Manhattan cable television. Sponsored by Flo Kennedy, WVNS was the first all women team of videographers/new reporters. Their coverage of the convention focused on the newly formed National Women’s Political Caucus and the candidacy of Shirley Chisholm for president and other related events largely ignored by the mainstream media. They held extensive interviewers with protesters gathered in a people’s park near the convention, including activists from the women’s movement and queer and trans movements, as well as a heated protest of a fashion show held as a fundraiser for the democratic party.”
