All You Need Is Dynamite

Regent Street Polytechnic (involving students who became Amber collective) 1968

From footage of the Grosvenor Square riot, which developed from an anti-Vietnam War protest outside the US embassy, All You Need is Dynamite follows the disaffected working class youths who were arrested and charged, exploring their involvement and their lives. A Regents Street Polytechnic student film, it was made by some of the members of the group that became Amber.
