Another Direction screens at MN Historical Society’s 1968 Film Competition

In Reel Nomad's new short documentary, Another Direction, Dick Bancroft recalls some of his memories of 1968. This film was produced for the Minnesota Historical Society’s 1968 Film Competition in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, Chicago History Museum and the Oakland Museum of California. 1968 was a year when war raged, angry protests erupted everywhere, assassinations sent shock waves around the world and images of the whole Earth were beamed back from space for the first time. People say that the events of 1968 "rocked the world."

View all the short films entered in the "1968 Film Competition" and be present as awards are announced at the Minnesota History Center on Sunday, September 27th.

A world erupting in spontaneous acts of student resistance to authority. A family growing during all of the commotion. Dick Bancroft moved in Another Direction.
