The Silver Screen Revolution
American Cinema 1960-1980Streaming Video - 2009
Rejecting Hollywood's traditions, young American filmmakers in the 1960s forged a new cinema that held sway for two decades. This program revisits that period through detailed interviews with directors Martin Scorsese (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) and Lee Schatzberg (The Panic in Needle Park) and production designer Dean Tavoularis (The Godfather trilogy, Apocolypse Now) Scorcese talks at length about the upheaval of the Vietnam era and the challenges of getting Mean Streets made; Schatzberg, in conjunction with legendary producer Dominick Dunne, describes how studio management changes affected Panic; and Tavoularis shares recollections from his long collaboration with Francis Ford Coppola.
