Question authority, break with tradition, and join the revolution. The summer of 1968 is revived, 50 years later, in the Walker Cinema. Experience the heat of '68 through the eyes of filmmakers who challenged conventions to capture the rebellious spirit of their changing times. Beginning with a star-spangled, superhero satire and ending with a lovers' quarrel in Central Park, this summer series features five distinctive visions of an explosive, expressive year. View the full film series here. 

On August 8 & 10 at 7 pm, view the 1968 film Symbiopsychotaxiplasm Take One. Actor and filmmaker William Greaves (producer and cohost of Black Journal) dives into the art-house verité. Playing the role of director, Greaves presides over three film crews in Central Park. One films a break-up, one follows the crew filming the unhappy couple, and the last captures everything else.

The crews question the director’s competence (does he know what he’s doing?), perspective (is he a misogynist?), intentions (…does he really know what he’s doing?), take over the camera, and plot a revolt. His multilayered examination is a documentary inside a documentary inside a documentary—with a kaleidoscopic 60s vibe and score by Miles Davis. 

This film series is a partnership between the Minnesota Historical Society and the Walker Art Center.
