1969: A Year That Changed Hollywood

July 19–25, 2019

Quentin Tarantino’s long awaited Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, an unrestrained re-creation of—and requiem to—1969 Hollywood, will open at the JBFC on July 26. To get in the mood, we’re turning back the clock to look at some of the big releases of that tumultuous year, when harder-edged stories dealing with social and political pressures of the day—whether the sexual revolution or the impact of the Vietnam War—took over the typical ’60s Hollywood fare of bland widescreen epics and musicals, reflecting and feeding a radical new era in filmmaking here and abroad.
