Last Summer Won't Happen
This independent color documentary interviews two Greenwich Village youths who have turned their backs on the Establishment. One is a young man, a drug dealer who vapidly stares into the camera after a rapid verbal diatribe. Another is a young girl who maintains she will always try to remain childlike. Protests of radical activists are illustrated, but no apparent reason is given for their rebellion. Music is provided by Country Joe and The Fish and Procol Harem in this feature that appeared at the New York film Festival. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
