In the 1960s a considerable number of youth cultures developed in Great Britain, leaving lasting impressions on adolescents with their music genres, fashion styles and attitudes. This retrospective goes on a search for the origins and progressions of these different scenes, which had an impact on the pop culture until the 1990s and beyond.
These are the selected films:
Salad Days in Bodmin (1964)
Reporter Terry Fleet interviews youngsters in Bodmin about their plans for a local youth club.
The Rocking Horse (1962)
A chance love affair between a working class teddy boy and a sophisticated middle-class artist in London.
Cheltenham Mods and Rockers (1965)
On occasion of a Rolling Stones gig, a reporter investigates the conflicts between teenage rockers and mods.
Love in at Handyside Arcade (1967)
Tyneside’s shopping centre was a place for flamboyant fashion styles. But was that still counter-cultural, or already a sellout?
Knights Electric (1980)
A group of rowdy punks causes chaos at a seaside funfair, though their plans are thwarted by the sharply-dressed Knights Electric.
Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore (1999)
A psychedelic video collage by Turner prize winning artist Mark Leckey, in which northern soul collides with acid house.
Director Torstein Grude (Producer of “The Act of Killing”) follows some partakers of the 90s free party movement.
