  • Covers the period from 1960 to 1969; Produced and released in 1990.

    This highly acclaimed documentary chronicles the 1960s counterculture as it was born and bred at the University of California, Berkeley. What began as a campus Free Speech Movement blossomed into a generation's social revolution--eventually encompassing the antiwar movement, women's liberation, and the Black Panthers' struggle. Key figures from the period (such as Allen Ginsberg, Mario Savio, and Huey Newton) offer their assessment of the events. One interesting segment examines how the political contingent parted ways with the hippies, who were not especially concerned with politics. BERKELEY IN THE SIXTIES unrolls in three sections: Confronting the University, Confronting America, and Confronting History.
