(p.201) Chapter Eight Film
The American Counterculture

Christopher Gair

Edinburgh University Press

In the concluding chapter, the focus remains on Hollywood representations of the counterculture. The chapter suggests, however, that from the mid-1960s, many counterculture-inflected actors, directors and producers shape far more nuanced representations of the counterculture than had occurred in the 1950s. While the chapter’s focus is on Woodstock, Deliverance and Easy Rider, attention is also paid to independent filmmaking by Sam Brakhage, Andy Warhol and others.

Keywords:   Hollywood, Woodstock, New York Newsreel, Jimi Hendrix, Students for a Democratic Society, Weather Underground, Deliverance, Easy Rider
