An unsung hero of British cinema, Peter Whitehead is an extraordinary character whose films provide a fascinating and important window onto the late 1960s counterculture of both London and New York.
On Thursday, September 28th join us for what is considered by Whitehead to be his most important film, The Fall. The Fall is a personal statement on violence, revolution and the turbulence in late 60s America. Filmed entirely in and around New York between October 1967 and June 1968, it features Robert Kennedy, the Bread and Puppet Theater, Paul Auster (fresh-faced as a Columbia student), Tom Hayden, Mark Rudd, Stokely Carmichael, H. Rap Brown, Arthur Miller, Robert Lowell and Robert Rauschenberg.
