Show Summary Details


In the concluding chapter, the focus remains on Hollywood representations of the counterculture. The chapter suggests, however, that from the mid-1960s, many counterculture-inflected actors, directors and producers shape far more nuanced representations of the counterculture than had occurred in the 1950s. While the chapter’s focus is on Woodstock, Deliverance and Easy Rider, attention is also paid to independent filmmaking by Sam Brakhage, Andy Warhol and others.
