Dinkytown History on Screen

From Minnesota Alumni Magazine Spring 2015

A new film telling the story of the 40-day, 40-night continuous occupation of Dinkytown at the height of the anti-Vietnam War demonstrations in 1970 will premier at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival April 9 through 25 at St. Anthony Main Theater in Minneapolis. The 95-minute film, “The Dinkytown Uprising,” highlights the takeover of Dinkytown in protest against the war and the proposed Red Barn Restaurant. It was shot by alumnus Al Milgrom (B.A. ’47) and is narrated by playwright and actor Peter Moore.
