Rebels, Wackos, and Bums...The Student Revolt of the Nineteen Sixties

Development of a feature-length documentary about the student movement of the 1960s.

A feature documentary telling the as yet untold and broadly misunderstood story of the nineteen sixties Student Movement—the largest, most diverse and dynamic social movement in U.S. history. To mold this chaotic time into a dynamic and informative film that takes the audience through the arc of the movement while capturing the mood and spirit of the time as it was felt by its participants, Rebels, Wackos and Bums will weave together two streams: significant events and deeply personal experiences. Relying on archival resources, the film will focus both on key moments (many of which have been forgotten or buried in history), and personal stories told in letters, diaries, personal photos, and even home movies.
