Birth of the 60s

USA, 1989 (MIFF 1990, Experimental)

Director: Raoul Rosenberg

The social maelstrom of possibly the century's most thoroughly revolutionary decade is divertingly depicted in a boy-meets-girl, girl-gets-pregnant scenario. What our beehive-crowned heroine has gestating inside her is no less than the epoch itself, causing the whole riotous barrage of the period's icons and mores to explode around her, inside and out.

Elvis, Janis, Jimi, JFK, drive-ins, peace symbols. It's all here in this turbulent time capsule.
