Clip: Season 17 Episode 5 | 2m 58s

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Chuck Norris vs. Communism, a Romanian citizen who lived through the repressive '80s remembers how he managed to smuggle in a video player (which cost as much as a car) and host word-of-mouth underground screenings of American films in his apartment. Dramatic recreations bring it all to life.
