UCLA Student Films: 1960s Continued

November 22, 2019 - 7:30 pm
David Labrun, Alan Barker, Joan Churchill, James Joannides, Tom Koester, John H. Mayer, Nettie Peña, Ron Raley, Phyllis Tanaka, Steve Wax.

The 1960s Continued. The 1960s brought the counterculture to campus. The first program tonight features films made by and with the participation of the founding members of The Doors. The second is concerned with changing attitudes toward society and rock music. In the later 1960s, ethnic minorities of color began finding voices both behind and in front of the camera.

There will be a 30-minute Q&A with filmmakers and intermission between Program 1 and 2.

Special thanks to our supporters who contributed to The Ray Manzarek & Jim Morrison Preservation Project.
