Although often conceived as a period of social conformity, the late 1950s to early 1960s was an era when the idea of a counter-culture hero or anti-hero had special resonance. Through five films, we see ideals of rebellion and social inquiry that would become prevalent in youth culture in the early 1960s and remind us today of the attitudes that were the backdrop for the emergence of Rock music and the phenomenal success of The Beatles. Join us for films that feature rebellious protagonists and celebrate the spirit of independence along with youthful prowess.
This film series is offered in collaboration with the Naro Expanded Cinema and is screened at the theater located at 507 Colley Avenue in Norfolk. Each film will be introduced by a Chrysler Museum curator offering diverse perspectives on connections between the films and what is captured in Paul McCartney Photographs 1963–64: Eyes of the Storm.
