In partnership with the University of Edinburgh, Filmhouse is proud to present a short season of films that reflect the time in a variety of ways. Thus Far From Vietnam, Jean-Luc Godard’s La Chinoise and two classics from the Czech New Wave Cinema together represent the ongoing cultural ferment of the 1960s, while more recent works such as The Dreamers, Milou en Mai, and Something in the Air demonstrate the continuing attraction for filmmakers of the events themselves.

Supported by James and Morag Anderson.
