Zala Films' The Thursday Club is now available to livestream at Amazon. In October 1967, the filmmaker was beaten at an antiwar demonstration in Oakland, California. Thirty years later, he set out to find the police officers who were present at that event—his best clue, a news photograph of himself getting clubbed. The Thursday Club is for anyone interested in the explosive social movements of the 1960s, whether they empathize with the protesters or the police. (If you want your own DVD of the film, you can purchase one on Amazon, or order one from Zala Films.)
