Product Overview

The 1960s was famously the decade of sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. It was also a decade of revolution and counter-revolution, of economic booms and the rebellion against consumerism. It was a decade in which the avant-garde came out of the closet and into the street. The cinema was central to this atmosphere of cultural ferment. Hollywood was in decline, both artistically and commercially. The scene was therefore set for new cinemas to emerge to attract the young, the politically conscious and the sexually emancipated. Making Waves is a sharp, focused, and brilliant survey of the innovative filmmaking of the 1960s, placing it in its political, economic, cultural and aesthetic context - capturing the distinctiveness of a decade which was great for the cinema and for the world at large.
