What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organizers of the protest—including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale—were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.

Nominated for Best Picture, Actor in a Supporting Role (Sacha Baron Cohen), Cinematography, Film Editing and Original Score at the 93rd Academy Awards
