  • Seattle International Film Festival 305 Harrison Street Seattle, WA, 98109 United States (map)

During the 60s, Hollywood turned its cameras toward an era of sex, drugs, and rock & roll that was exploding across the country.  In the decades that followed, some of America's most iconic filmmakers would use the radical 60s as a lens to dramatically reflect the revolution of history. This class will look at Hollywood's relationship with the 1960s, starting with how the counterculture was filmed as it happened and then exploring how the era's legacy continues to captivate audiences today.
