Presale unavailable

In May of 1969 ‘De Vilde Engle’ showed up at the Saga Theater for the premiere of John Wayne´s “The Green Berets” and attacked a large mob of left-wingers who were protesting the film. The brawl got huge coverage in the media and became known as “The Saga War.” It enshrined the group as the first high-profile biker gang in Denmark and leaders of working-class resistance against “leftist commie pinkos.” Tonight we salute them and the influence they had on Danish popular and social culture. (This riot is discussed in “Vilde Engle – En Minoritet,” and more background on the group can easily be googled.)
