BERKELEY IN THE SIXTIES THURSDAY, APRIL 12 • 7:15
IN PERSON: Filmmaker Mark Kitchell
Nominee for the Academy Award. And winner of the National Society of Film Critics Award and the Sundance Audience Award, Mark Kitchell’s first feature has come to be regarded as a defining documentary about the protest movements of the 1960s. The film brings an impressive sense of immediacy to the decade’s events: the birth of the Free Speech movement, civil rights marches, anti-Vietnam protests, the counterculture, the women’s movement, the rise of the Black Panthers. The San Francisco Chronicle called it “an exciting and provocative record,” and the Los Angeles Times wrote: “The film’s intellect is matched by a vivid sense of history; this really is the ‘60s again.” Writers: Susan Griffin, Mark Kitchell, Stephen Most. Director: Mark Kitchell. (US 1990) 117 min. plus discussion.
