Summary

Born to be Wild tells how, in the late sixties, Establishment Hollywood was jarred awake by the smash box-office popularity of Bonnie and Clyde, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Easy Rider-Maverick films that spoke to a vast new audience of young moviegoers.

The film industry reacted with an all-out effort to curt sixties youth by making anti-establishment movies filled with strong social commentary.

Born to be wild is both a narrative and a critical history of this era. It tells how Hollywood addressed such issues as violence, campus revolt, Watergate and the Vietnam War, and how audacious young filmmakers, in chronicling, an age, told the story of a generation.
