Hamilton College F.I.L.M. Series
Free and open to the public
Bradford Auditorium in Hamilton’s Kirner-Johnson Building
Saturday, Nov. 2, from noon to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 3, from noon to 3:30 p.m.
Paul Cronin presents A Time to Stir, his epic, 7½-hour immersion in the Columbia University revolt of 1968. Cronin recorded conversations with 700 veterans of that moment and in 2018 finished editing this document of a crucial moment in American political history.
A Time to Stir is an opportunity to cinematically “sit in” with the Columbia students, share the experience of those who witnessed it, and see, hear, and feel what this event was and something of what it meant.
Shown in two parts, Nov. 2 and 3. Hamilton Professor of History Maurice Isserman will join Cronin in a discussion following the Sunday, Nov. 3, screening.

Sunday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m.: Dominic Gagnon presents Going South (2018).
