- The Persons Unknown (1980 22 minutes)
As produced in 1973 (when the topic was still fresh and making headlines), Gordon Carr's muckraking documentary The Angry Brigade discusses and explores a controversial and infamous series of events that began three years prior - universally known and explored in Great Britain but seldom acknowledged in the States. In the early 1970s, a domestic terrorist group formed in the UK that alternately called itself 'The Angry Brigade' and 'The Stoke Newington Eight.' A libertarian militant unit designed to stir up anarchy and protest "the system," the Newington Eight set about planting bombs in a series of public and private locations throughout Britain, such as the homes of Tory MPs. Its activities officially began in 1970, with a bomb planted in the Paddington Green Police Station, but the group arguably culled inspiration from the First of May Group, with their horrific machine-gunning at the U.S. Embassy in London, c. 1967. Carr's documentary explores the doings and motivations of this outfit, and speculates on its (then) future. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
