6 Films About America's 1960-1970s Youth Revolution Packed Into Over 2 Hours On 1 Dual Layer All Regions DVD!

Contents:

BRINK OF DISASTER (1972, 28:41)
A film which summons the spirits of a circa 1972 student activist's ancestors, who proceed to beat him up before setting back the clock, returning to haunt him, but also to educate him. The head of the History Department attempts to assist them in this re-education, explaining to the Vietnam War veteran / football player / honor student that he's an unwitting dupe of a communist conspiracy to undermine American society. Amidst footage of the March on the Pentagon and protests at Lafayette Park on the one hand, and film of the Berlin Wall and the Invasion of Hungary on the other, the activist learns "What's Right with America", which is said to be, quite candidly, materialist superiority. "The Commies" haven't duped the shades of the Pioneer farmer who know Ben Franklin, the Sailor who knew Fulton, and the Mechanic who knew Ford (Franklin, Fulton, Ford - one more "F" & he'd be "4F"), and they tell their variously grand & greatly grand son exactly that. They win him over, and he decides he won't let the student rioters into the library to wreak wanton destruction after all - rather, he'll go & beat the hell out of them instead, shoulder-to-shouder with his teacher & disembodied kinfolk...

COFFEE HOUSE RENDEZVOUS (1969, 26:19)
The Coffee Institute gives its self-interested take on how coffee houses served as engines of social revolution - sort of - during the 1960s. Odd thing is, the coffee houses in question are sponsored by churches and other establishment concerns.

GREENWICH VILLAGE SUNDAY (Early 1960s, 12:29)
The great Jean Shepherd of radio, television, movie & literary fame narrates this Stewart Willensky film documenting life and neighborhood of this celebrated cultural center at a celebrated moment in its history.

SOCIAL SEMINAR: CHANGING (1971, 27:49)
The National Institute of Mental Health sponsored UCLA's Extension Media Center to produce this film to illustrate how the 60s youth struggled to find an identity in a world of contradictory roles, morals and values, with special attention placed on deconstructing stereotypes such as hippie, hardhat, square, etc..

TRAGEDY OR HOPE (1972, 24:03)
Summons the spirits of a circa 1972 student activist's ancestors, who proceed to beat him up before setting back the clock, returning to haunt him, but also to educate him. The head of the History Department attempts to assist them in this re-education, explaining to the Vietnam War veteran / football player / honor student that he's an unwitting dupe of a communist conspiracy to undermine American society. Amidst footage of the March on the Pentagon and protests at Lafayette Park on the one hand, and film of the Berlin Wall and the Invasion of Hungary on the other, the activist learns "What's Right with America", which is said to be, quite candidly, materialist superiority. "The Commies" haven't duped the shades of the Pioneer farmer who know Ben Franklin, the Sailor who knew Fulton, and the Mechanic who knew Ford (Franklin, Fulton, Ford - one more "F" & he'd be "4F"), and they tell their variously grand & greatly grand son exactly that. They win him over, and he decides he won't let the student rioters into the library to wreak wanton destruction after all - rather, he'll go & beat the hell out of them instead, shoulder-to-shouder with his teacher & disembodied kinfolk.

YIPPIE FOR PIGASUS! (1968, 13:02)
This is the arguably the greatest and most emblematic film to come from the 1960s American counterculture - the psychedelic short by the Youth International Party (aka the "Yippies") which both documented and commented on their experience at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, and their response to it by nominating for president a pig by the name of Pigasus!
