13th Green Mountain Film Festival: <i>The Most Dangerous Man in America</i> Montpelier Vermont


Rick Goldsmith and Judith Ehrlich's eye-opening documentary has been nominated for this year's Best Documentary Oscar. "I just say that we've got to keep our eye on the main ball. The main ball is Ellsberg. We've got to get this son-of-a-bitch," said Richard Nixon in conversation with Attorney General John Mitchell in 1971. Earlier that year, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, concluded that the war was based on decades of lies and leaked 7,000 pages of top secret documents to The New York Times, making headlines around the world. This film is a riveting story of how one man's profound change of heart created a landmark struggle involving America's newspapers, its president, and the Supreme Court. Los Angeles Times: "Fortunately, the staunchly committed and controversial Ellsberg, now 78, is still around to tell his history-making tale, and he lends the film gravitas as both its persuasive narrator and primary talking head." Community Partners: Peace and Justice Center, American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont. 92 minutes. With short HA'AKI (5 minutes).
