Product Overview

On May 17, 1968, three priests, a nurse, an artist and four others walked into a Catonsville, Maryland draft board office, grabbed hundreds of selective service records and burned them with homemade napalm.

Investigation of a Flame is an intimate look at this unlikely band - dubbed the Catonsville Nine - who broke the law in a poetic act of civil disobedience.

The publicity and news coverage from their ensuing trial helped galvanize an American public that was becoming increasingly disillusioned with the Vietnam War.

Investigation of a Flame explores this Sixties protest within the context of these extremely different times; times in which foes of Middle East peace, abortion, and technology resort to violence to access the public imagination.

Filmmaker Lynne Sachs has combined volatile, long-unseen, archival footage with a series of informal interviews with Daniel Berrigan and Philip Berrigan, Howard Zinn, John Hogan, Tom Lewis, and Marjorie Melville and Tom Melville.

The meditative result encourages viewers to ponder the contemporary relevance of civil disobedience and the implications of personal sacrifice for the greater good.
