This looks really interesting and even better, you can go to the official premiere of My Generation featuring Michael Caine himself.
Yes, I know there were previews, but this is the official screening of the film.
My Generation is directed by David Batty and written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais. It also features Michael Caine as co-producer, narrator and focal point of a film described as ‘a perceptive and entertaining journey through the Swinging Sixties and the societal upheaval that still resonates today in the UK and around the world’.
The story is told with film clips, archival footage, music of the era, and the participation of the like of Paul McCartney, Roger Daltrey, Mary Quant, Marianne Faithfull, David Bailey, Twiggy and many other pop culture legends of the day. Caine serves as the guide ‘with an insider’s unique, humorous and moving insights’.
The clips in the film is sourced from over 1,600 hours of material, including a treasure trove of hours and hours of rushes from the seminal 1960s filmmaker Peter Whitehead, whose work includes unseen films with Caine, Mick Jagger, Julie Christie, The Rolling Stones and many other leading figures seen in My Generation.
It took five years to put it all together, so you can imagine the end result is pretty special. A trailer is below.
