Robert Kramer, 1970
USA | 130 minutes
In a dystopian near future, America wages war with Mexico, an oppressive fascist regime sets the law of the land, and a New York-based radical cell prepares for armed revolution. Underground filmmaker and Newsreel co-founder Robert Kramer’s unclassifiable thriller, shot on grainy, black-and-white 16mm, takes a clear-eyed look at the inner workings of a fictional band of revolutionaries whose convictions and disputes were, for the Left of Kramer’s day, anything but fiction. Jonas Mekas called Ice “the most original and most significant American narrative film of the late ’60s.”
