Jeremy Kagan – Conspiracy: The Trial of the Chicago 8 (1987)

Despite the title the film has nothing to do with conspiracy stuff but refers to the “Chicago Eight” who were eight protestors and were charged with conspiracy, inciting to riot, and other charges related to violent protests that took place in Chicago, IL, at the time of the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

In 1987, HBO aired Conspiracy: The Trial of the Chicago 8, a docudrama which re-enacted the trial using the transcript as the primary source for the script. William Kunstler, Leonard Weinglass, and all eight of the original defendants participated in the project, and provided commentary throughout the film. It was awarded the 1988 CableACE Award for Best Dramatic Special.
