Robert Kennedy’s death, like the President’s, was mourned as an extension of the evils of senseless violence; events moved on, and the profound alterations that these deaths … brought in the equation of power in America was perceived as random …. What is odd is not that some people thought it was all random, but that so many intelligent people refused to believe that it might be anything else. Nothing can measure more graphically how limited was the general understanding of what is possible in America.
~ Congressman Allard Lowenstein
Special Feature: Plaza Man
This 2014 Dutch documentary profiles the struggles of author Robert Groden against the massed power of the city of Dallas through the institution of the Sixth Floor Museum. Kasper Verkaik captures the endless campaign of harassment against Groden in his effort to educate visitors to Dealey Plaza about the true facts of the Kennedy assassination as opposed to the cover-up of the Warren Report. It illustrates the price he paid to wage that one-man crusade.
For further background on Gary Mack and the Sixth Floor Museum, we recommend the following:
The first two discuss documentary films Gary churned out with Discovery Channel. The last two discuss how he influenced the closing down of Dealey Plaza during the 50th anniversary.
