Lincoln Center digs up 1968 films

N.Y. 'Perspective' commemorates landmark year

Among the many retrospective events planned on 1968, New York’s Film Society of Lincoln Center has assembled an expansive film festival highlighting landmark domestic and foreign pics related to that that landmark year, as well as docus and rarely seen newsreels and shorts.

Film Society program director Richard Pena has even dug up the infamous 11-minute “Yippee Political Commercial,” in which activists Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin lay out their political platform with trademark irreverence.

Pics on tap for “1968: An International Perspective,” which runs April 29-May 14 at the Walter Reade Theater, include Jean-Luc Godard’s “La Chinoise,” Brian De Palma’s “Dionysus in ’69,” Emile de Antonio’s “In the Year of the Pig,” Alain Tanner’s “Jonah Who Will Be 25 in the Year 2000,” Sidney Lumet and Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s “King: A Filmed Record…Montgomery to Memphis,” Haskell Wexler’s “Medium Cool” and Michelangelo Antonioni’s “Zabriskie Point.”
