Revolution is in the Streets

Revolution is in the Streets: The Sixties from an International Perspective is going on right now at the Goethe-Institut.

The “Sixties,” especially the pivotal year of 1968, were a global phenomenon, witnessing protest movements in places as far apart as Chicago, Berlin, Mexico City, Prague, Paris and Rome. In the public memory of numerous countries, images of generational revolt, countercultural liberation and confrontations with the authorities are closely tied with those years.

This series highlights some of these events through the eyes of contemporary films, and discusses their legacies with former participants and scholars of this turbulent time.

Tickets are $6 for regular admission.
