Collection Highlights

NOW SUPERBLY RE-MASTERED!

BERKELEY IN THE SIXTIES is an award-winning documentary made in 1990 by independent filmmaker, Mark Kitchell, exploring the transformation of a quiet university campus into the site of massive political activism in the 1960s, as students fought for their right of political expression on campus and against the Vietnam War.

Nominated for an Academy Award in the Documentary category, the film chronicles the reality of life in Berkeley, California, during the turbulent years of the rise and fall of the US student protest movement, from free speech to the Peace Movement and counter-culture and on to the start of the Women's Movement.

Featuring Bobby Seale, Martin Luther King, Allen Ginsberg, Ronald Reagan, Joan Baez, the Grateful Dead, and former Berkeley students and staff

"A REAL TRIUMPH! ABSORBING AND PROVOCATIVE. A valuable attempt to put the events of that decade into perspective." - Village Voice.

"A POTENT BLAST FROM THE PAST ... sweeping and event-filled ... a lively chronicle." - New York Times.

"STARTLING ... STRIKINGLY IMMEDIATE FOOTAGE ... well sequenced ... highly informative." - Variety.

BERKELEY IN THE SIXTIES is available for screenings (in a superb 1080p file), on DVD and Vimeo-on-Demand from Ronin Films. For details and orders visit www.roninfilms.com.au/video/846/0/411.html
