UCLA Student Films: 1960s-1970s

I Lost it at the Movies
November 23, 2019 - 7:30 pm
Diana Gould, Bill Norton, John Ptak, Steve Wax, J. David Wyles

The 1960s-’70s. Popular culture, manifested in rock music and movies, increasingly became subjects for student filmmakers wishing to create an ironic distance between themselves and the work of the entertainment industry. The counterculture both embraced outsiders who were victims of social norms, and sought alternative lifestyles that eschewed the norms of mainstream society.

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