Event description
Acclaimed director and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin will join us to talk about his new film, The Trial of the Chicago 7.

About this Event

At the 1968 Democratic National convention, what was intended to be a peaceful protest against the Vietnam war turned into a violent clash with the police and the National Guard. The organisers of the protest were charged with conspiracy to incite violence. Featuring a stellar ensemble cast, including Mark Rylance, Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Panther Bobby Seale, The Trial of the Chicago 7 is a re-telling of the notorious and politically motivated trial that followed.

Sorkin’s electrifying film captures an era of tumultuous change and political protest which feels relevant today. It is a timely exploration of public anger, protest and the demonisation of dissent that forms a culture war that rages still in contemporary America.

At this livestreamed Guardian Live event, Sorkin will discuss the making of the movie and will answer some of your questions.
