Uprising! Spirit of ’68

A UK-wide programme of screenings and events exploring the cinema and the legacy of 1968 when decade’s worth of news took place in one year, from the Prague spring to the Paris riots, from the Tet Offensive to the killings of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy. The UK saw student protests flare up on campuses across the country and rising tension in the wake of Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech, while in June a machinist’s strike at Dagenham’s Ford plant heralded a burgeoning women’s movement and paved the way for the Equal Pay Act.

Yellow Submarine (1968)

Once upon a time… or maybe twice, there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland – a place where happiness and music reigned supreme. But all that was threatened when the terrible Blue Meanies declared war and sent in their army led by a menacing Flying Glove to destroy all that was good. Enter John, Paul, George and Ringo to save the day!

When The Beatles’ spectacular feature, Yellow Submarine, debuted in 1968, it was instantly recognisable as a landmark film. By merging the visual splendour of animation with a fantasy – adventure tale filled with peace, love, hope and of course, music, Yellow Submarine captured the essence of the Sixties. And by integrating the freestyle approach of the era with innovative animation techniques, it revolutionised a genre.

???? ‘A garish, gorgeous example of pop art at its finest.’

 ???? ‘Endlessly inventive.’

‘A breakthrough combination of the feature film and art’s intimacy with the unconscious.’
