Lincoln Center offers ‘1968’

Org presents series of shorts, newsreels

Gotham’s Film Society of Lincoln Center will present a retrospective series “1968: An International Perspective” which will showcase features, shorts, docs and newsreels from that turbulent era.

Series, which runs from April 29 -May 14 highlights events like the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, the Democratic convention protests in Chicago and the Prague spring revolt in the formerly Soviet-dominated Czechoslovakia.

“The events of 1968 continue to reverberate in our culture and politics, as the present presidential contest veers at times into a debate over the legacy of the ‘60s,” says Richard Peña, program director at the Film Society.

Films screening include: “Dionysus in ‘69,” Brian De Palma’s 1970 political and theatrical film of the play by helmer Richard Schechner and the Performance Group; “In the Year of the Pig,” Emile de Antonio’s doc about Vietnam; Sidney Lumet and Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s 1970 doc “King: A Filmed Record…Montgomery to Memphis”; and Michelangelo Antonioni’s “Zabriskie Point” which focused on American youth culture and radicalism.
