The late 1960s counterculture was a mass awakening. It was a renaissance of music, art, experimental films, underground comix, psychedelic drugs, Eastern philosophy and cosmic consciousness. It was the dawn of the movements for peace, civil rights, environmentalism, sexual diversity and women’s liberation.
UNDERGROUND 68 is the story of Ariel Smolik-Valles '17, a Harvard student writing her 2017 senior thesis about campus opposition to the Vietnam war fifty years ago. She digs up more than she bargains for in the unconventional lives of artists, musicians, and activists from Harvard's Class of 1968.
Doors open at 3:00pm and the film screens at 3:30pm, followed by the discussion and mixer until 6:00pm.
