Filmed as the official statement of the Youth International Party, this film is
as freewheeling and irreverent as the Yippies themselves. It presents an overview
of 1968 Chicago, Mayor Daley, and the pig the Yippies ran for president. The film
juxtaposes orgy scenes from D.W. Griffith's Intolerance and Keystone
Cops chases with Yippie antics in Chicago. The film also explores the issue of police
brutality - both humorously and with an undercurrent of deep anger. This film was
actually produced by and for yippies; Newsreel adopted it in order to bring it to
a wider audience.
