It's great to see that Al Milgrom's DINKYTOWN UPRISING is finished and getting attention. Like RADICAL ROOTS, it involves a political struggle in Vietnam War-era Minneapolis involving food. In 1970, students rallied for direct action against the first fast food place in Dinkytown, and Al was there with his camera (it's hard to imagine Dinkytown as a fast food-free zone, huh?). I'm glad they're adding more screenings at MSPIFF, because I can't wait to see it!
