In 1975, director Emile de Antonio filmed some of the most wanted women and men in America - fugitive members of the militant leftist group known as the Weather Underground. Shooting in secret and utilizing creative methods to obscure their identities, his documentary  “Underground” had consequences no one could have predicted.
