The 1960s counterculture rises again and shines a blazing light on today's realities in UNDERGROUND 68, the new film from independent filmmaker Peter Coonradt AB '68. Watch this thought-provoking and wildly original film at a special screening on July 28th at Emerson LA, an event co-hosted by Harvardwood and the Harvard Club of Southern California. Peter Coonradt will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion. 

u68.jpgThe late 1960s counterculture was a mass awakening. It was a renaissance of music, art, experimental films, underground comix, psychedelic drugs, Eastern philosophy and cosmic consciousness. It was the dawn of the movements for peace, civil rights, environmentalism, sexual diversity and women’s liberation.

UNDERGROUND 68 is the story of Ariel Smolik-Valles '17, a Harvard student writing her 2017 senior thesis about campus opposition to the Vietnam war fifty years ago. She digs up more than she bargains for in the unconventional lives of artists, musicians, and activists from Harvard's Class of 1968.

"A dreamlike, multilayered film... spins out different threads of the 1960s revolution and weaves together something quirky and hopeful and touching."  - Harvard Magazine
