David Fentonís assignments as a young news reporter instinctively captured some of the most critical historic political moments of the previous century. His shots and refreshingly candid stories take the viewer to the scene through the lens of an uncommon insider. Witness the end of the Chicago 7 conspiracy trial; meditate with Allen Ginsberg at the Central Park Be-in in 1967; cheer with pied piper Abbie Hoffman; sing along with the soulful cries of Janis Joplin, Mick Jagger, and Arlo Guthrie; and join in the famous chant The Whole World Is Watching. Raw, touching, and unforgettable, SHOTS is an archive of rebellion worthy of any American history library.
