Dinkeytown UprisingThe year is 1970 and the Vietnam War keeps escalating. Protests are erupting all over U.S. campuses. This documentary chronicles the 40-day, 40-night continuous Dinkytown “occupation” to prevent construction of an unwanted hamburger joint. From film programmer-turned-filmmaker Al Milgrom, the story is recounted by seven participants whose varied reminiscences about defending the neighborhood become a microcosm of the memorable ’70s generation.
