UCLA Student Films: 1960s Continued

Friday Nov 22, 2019 07:30 PM This is a past program

The UCLA Film & Television Archive presents classic film and contemporary cinema in the Hammer's Billy Wilder Theater.

Part of the series 40 Years of UCLA Student Filmmaking. In addition to the screenings at the Hammer, more student films are available on the Archive's YouTube channel.

The 1960s brought the counterculture to UCLA's campus. The first portion of this program 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. Special thanks to the Archive supporters who contributed to The Ray Manzarek & Jim Morrison Preservation Project.
