Eye on the 60’s
The Larz Anderson Auto Museum is pleased to announce a very Special Event as it will hosts a screening of the critically acclaimed theatrical documentary EYE ON THE 60s: The Iconic Photography of Rowland Scherman, directed by Chris Szwedo, on Friday evening March 14th at 7:00 pm.
The film is a fascinating recollection of a remarkable era in American History—the 1960’s, seen through the work of noted LIFE photographer Rowland Scherman. Learn of key moments and people from someone on the inside– JFK, The Peace Corps, The March On Washington, Dylan, The Beatles, LBJ, RFK, and Woodstock. EYE ON THE 60s is an organic trip through the past, as well as an essay on technological change, and the passage of time. If you’re a boomer this is your film!“An absolutely wonderful, loving, and astute work.” - Former LIFE D.C. Bureau Chief Richard B. Stolley “I am deeply moved.” -Legendary Journalist Bill Moyers
Many of our Larz Anderson Lecture Series patrons know Chris from his two prior films that he has screened with us. Lime Rock Park: The Secret Valley of Racing– the evocative essay on road racing set against the backdrop of western Connecticut’s famed road course, and A Gullwing At Twilight: The Bonneville Ride of John Fitch– the cerebral documentation of racing legend John Fitch on his last great adventure at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
If your passion is Photography, American History, Civil Rights, or Rock n’ Roll, or if you love unique documentary films, let EYE ON THE 60s help make your Friday night of March 14th a special one. The doors open at 6:30pm with refreshments. Director Chris Szwedo will be on hand to discuss the making of the film, followed by the screening at 7pm and concluding with a Q/A session.AUDIENCE AWARD WINNER: 2013 SIDEWALK FILM FESTIVAL WINNER: 2013 FAIRHOPE FILM FESTIVAL
