Billy Jack (1971)
Billy Jack is a half-Indian/half-white ex-Green Beret who is being drawn more and more toward his Indian side. He hates violence, but can’t get away from it in the white man’s world. Pitting the good guys, the students of the peace-loving free-arts school in the desert vs. the conservative bad guys in the near-by town, the movie plays definitive late-60s themes/messages: anti-establishment, make love not war, the senseless slaughter of God’s creatures, the rape of society (figuratively and literally), two-sided justice, racial segregation and prejudices, and basic socialist ideals.
The Berkeley Underground Film Society; is an all ages club for collectors, researchers, and film enthusiasts in the East Bay and San Francisco Area. Their goal is to review and share a selective film history of unseen, rarely projected, or otherwise obscure 8mm, 9.5mm, and 16mm prints.
