Fancy a walk through 1960s swinging London? This is Michael Caine’s personal take on Sixties London as he accompanies you in this stylish documentary. Presented and narrated by Michael Caine, My Generation playfully explores the impact of Britain’s working class cultural revolution in the 1960s. Attitudes were changing and everything seemed possible. A wealth of archive footage, contributors including Marianne Faithfull, Paul McCartney, Twiggy, David Bailey and Mary Quant, and a spot-on soundtrack from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and The Who make for an exhilarating journey back in time. Caine is a delightful host and raconteur, sharing priceless anecdotes from the beginning of his career. And throughout this film, which was written by British TV legends Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, there are wonderful moments that capture the energy, style, fashion and sheer exuberance of that era. We guarantee you’ll come out whistling ‘Waterloo Sunset’.
On Saturday 7 October we are hosting a My Generation DJ Night inspired by the film, with DJ Chris Dale (New Untouchables).
