View From Underground Season


The late 1960s appeared filled with revolutionary possibilities, but were they for women? Breaking through the myths and stories of sex, drugs, rock-and-roll, freedom and flower power, this event will offer a frank examination of the experience of creative women innovating and experimenting amidst the turbulent upheavals shaking London.


Live discussion with some of the key women who were there – including Julie Felix, Carol Grimes, Jenny Spires and Jill Drower – will be followed by a screening of the searing Dope (1968, 90 mins). This study of a woman who turns to heroin use was co-directed by American film-maker, Diane Rochlin (now Flame Schon), and shot in the haunts of Hippy London in 1967.
