'The Loudest Generation': Documentary Detailing 1960s Women And The Trails They Blazed Screens Feb. 24


SUMMIT, NJ - 'Women of '69, Unboxed', an award-winning documentary exploring how women made history in the 1960s, will be shown February 24 at MONDO beginning at 8 p.m.

Hosted by The Film Society of Summit. the film details how these change agents blazed their own paths and fought for change. Following the screening. a discussion will be held with the documentary's producer Liz Roman Gallese.

A group of women, Skidmore college classmates, who were both electrified and pummeled by the 'turbulent surf' of the 60s, look back, then ahead, as they turn 65, ruminating on their heartaches and triumphs, and evaluating the 'dowry' they’ll leave for future generations. If their parents were 'The Greatest Generation', perhaps this generation was the loudest. They changed the world, at least in their fevered dreams, and the world changed them.

The rebellious years from 1965 - 1969 for women come to life in an unorthodox yearbook of college portraits. The women of the Class of ‘69 changed the world, fought for their freedom, and found it wasn’t free.

Now, 45 years later, they reflect on those photos and on ordinary lives made extraordinary by the tumultuous times in which they came of age. This rich documentary uses an extraordinary graphic record -- highly unorthodox yearbook photos of some 370 young women -- as an evocative window looking back on the journey of a generation reluctant to grow up.

Admission is $12 in advance, $14 at the door, with advance tickets available by contacting summitfilm@gmail.com. or purchasing at MONDO, located at 426 Springfield Avenue. Seating is limited.
