Title from title frames

This documentary tells the inspiring story of the pop culture explosion in 1960s through the eyes of Britain’s greatest living movie actor. Michael Caine introduces the film in the buttoned up, monochrome heart of London at the start of the 1960s, in a world blighted by economic hardship with WWII rationing having ended only six years earlier. In 1960s London a new generation has come of age. They’re energized, rebellious and hopeful. The documentary transforms into glorious technicolor as the cultural revolution gathers momentum and we’re enveloped in the kinetic world of London in the mid-1960s, an era marked by the rise of Beatlemania, the first star photographers, film makers and advertisers, creative people who embrace the exploding world of mass media with astonishing results. Winner of the Fondazione Mimmo Rotella Award at the **Venice International Film Festival.** *"...a sloppy wet kiss to Michael Caine and British youth culture of the 1960s" - Jay Weissberg, **Variety***
