Spirit of '68: If

Admission: 
£3 + Booking Fee

50TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING

Malcolm McDowell plays Mick, a teenage schoolboy who leads his classmates in a revolution against the stifling conformism of his boarding school. They school boys attempt to destroy the stagnant system of petty viciousness and an out-dated belief in the importance of the institution over the individual.

Shooting on the film began just a few months before the May 1968 riots in Paris, and Director Lindsay Anderson captures the spirit of youthful rebellion perfectly, linking it with the sweeping political changes that were dominating the headlines through the photos of Mao, Che Guevara, and Vietnam that adorn the walls of Mick's bedroom.

Nominated for a Golden Globe.

“Lindsay Anderson’s If… encapsulated the radical spirit of 1968.” ~ Gavin Lambert, The Guardian
