In 1968, Penn students protesting the war in Vietnam staged rallies outside the on–campus recruiting sessions of Dow Chemical Company, which supplied napalm to the Department of Defense. The demonstrations forced Dow to cancel recruitment events at Penn two years in a row. Anti–war activism only escalated—between February and March 1969, there had already been a six–day College Hall sit–in, a faculty research strike, and numerous student protests against the university’s involvement in biological and chemical warfare research.

The windows of Iztaccihuatl were blacked out. Customers who wanted to pick up food were instructed to call when they got there: don’t come in, we’ll bring it out to you.

With new awards shows every other day, The Oscars looming closer, and big studios like Marvel and DC still churning out their profitable sludge, it’s understandable to be a little sick of Hollywood movies. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here are some non–Hollywood films about love and relationships. But none of these films are conventional love stories, either—that would still be too mainstream. There are no conventionally happy endings (really, no happy endings at all), and no guarantee that the love interests will end up together. They’re moving, heartbreaking works that serve as a refreshing break from saccharine Hollywood fare.

It’s the perfect setup for a sports movie: plucky underdogs get a second chance to defeat the reigning champions (the Patriots have played ten Super Bowls, more than any other team in the NFL).
