Get an insight into the production of films from The Chicago Maternity Center Story (1976) to the forthcoming '63 Boycott (in-progress), with some anecdotes that we have never heard Gordon and Peter put on record before.
Peter also mentions his work on End of the Nightstick, his vitally important documentary about exposing police brutality in Chicago during the 1980s, covering the brutal interrogations and torture by Chicago Police Commander Jon Burge. Peter notes that you can (and should) watch all of End of the Nightstick on YouTube for free here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6eZlOEzNyc.
