INVITATION --- FREE PRIVATE SCREENING --- HANGING OUT-THEN AND NOW--- IN HD --- BFI SOUTHBANK
HANGING OUT - then and now is a 50-minute documentary about youth culture in London during the 1950’s, 60’s and now, directed by Lorna Holder & Yvonne Deutschman and produced by Tuareg Productions Ltd.
From flower power fashion to designer brand obsession, from telephone box to mobile phone, from café & club culture to social online networking, experience HANGING OUT. Witness how music and the club scenes of the 1960s played a vital part in bringing black and white young people together. Watch the Mods and Rockers reveal how the press paid them a fiver to fight on the beaches of Brighton. Hear about Muhammad Ali’s first visit to Brixton and the story of Michael Jackson buying a safari hat that inspired his album OFF THE WALL. One thing hasn’t changed-is the passionate energy young people bring to anti-war protests and social changes. Highlights include former MP Tony Benn and Kurt Barling (BBC correspondent) in discussion with young people around the issues of protest
…A fantastic watch especially for young people in sixth form and university ….
