Q&A with director Steven Kovacs and producers Isabel Maxwell and Dale Djerassi after the film!
1968 was the year when the political turmoil of the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement came to a head. The presidential election offered a chance for real change. Then Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, followed by the killing of Robert Kennedy. Later that summer, at the Democratic National Convention, the youth turned against the establishment. And in San Francisco an alternative reality was blossoming, fueled by sex, drugs and rock and roll. This film portrays those heady times through the experience of two brothers from an immigrant family.
On the 50th anniversary of the most momentous year in the lives of baby boomers, we are pleased to screen an independent feature chronicling that year, shot completely in the Bay Area with local talent and crew, featuring the music of the Jefferson Airplane, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Country Joe and the Fish. Many of the actors and production staff will be present.
Written and directed by Steven Kovacs. Starring Eric Larson, Robert Locke, and Neil Young. US, 1988. 99 min. 35mm.
