Film Series Background:
The films will be contextualized with an introduction, focusing on the historical setting, and will be concluded with an audience discussion. The museum film series expands the museum's interpretation of the 1960s by providing films from the era or films that comment on or shed insight into the decade. Films range from independent films to feature films to documentaries, foreign films and more. The museum launched its film programming in Fall 2009 with films connected to the special exhibit Robert Altman's Sixties: Portrait of a Generation. The films included Blow-Up, Almost Famous, and I'm Not There. The films were introduced by museum staff to provide content about the films in understanding the era of the 1960s.
Stay after the screening for “Cinema Conversations,” featuring a guest host from the film community to lead a lively group discussion about the film, the series, and subjects of the audience’s interest.
