Finally watched "The Trial of the Chicago 7" over the weekend.
Really well done "docu-drama", I was afraid a 2 hour+ court room film would be a "snoozer" , but, oh no...

Great film, Mike, spoiled only slightly by Sasha Baron Cohen's in and out accent.

Long time no see, Nick! Hope everything's going well up your neck of the woods. Take care!

Ha-ha Dr. G, I might have to re watch it to catch that. Must be hard to keep doing these films in other "voices" all the time..

Hmmm, not sure. As far as I know its only available on Sky Documentaries but I could be wrong.

Doc on 60's Paris Art and Jazz scenes

Don't know how to find it elsewhere, but definitely looks worth a watch.

Just ordered the DVD, Mike, thanks for the heads-up; right up my rue, and I'm sure my missus will love it too, she has a lifelong love story with Paris (and to a lesser extent with contemporary art); the English subtitles could be a handicap for her, but judging by interviews about the movie with director Ulrike Ottinger the visual component is paramount here. 

BTW, there's also a coffee table book based on the exhibition held a couple years ago.

Ditto, watched this on Saturday evening.  Really well made and both myself and Mrs Chilli enjoyed the movie, so much that I didn't even focus on Sacha Baron Cohen's accent, so it can't have been that prominent (from my perspective anyway).
