Chris Anderson | The country mired in an endless war, rising dissent, creative direct action — Camden 28 director Anthony Giacchino, much like the directors of the 2002 film The Weather Underground, obviously hopes to strike a chord in sympathetic viewers of a new antiwar era by reminding us of the tactics of an earlier generation of activists.
