The Berlinale has lined up a Retrospective called "New Hollywood 1967 - 1976. Trouble in Wonderland" for its 2004 edition.
The Retrospective will screen 66 films: from Arthur Penn's gangster ballad Bonnie and Clyde (1967) to Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (1976) and Robert Kramer's study of a generation Milestones (1976).
D. A. Pennebaker's Dylan portrait Don't Look Back (1967) will also play, as will Emile de Antonio's and Haskell Wexler's Underground (1976), a film "the FBI didn't want you to see".
It will also include road movies like Dennis Hopper's Easy Rider (1969) and Monte Hellman's Two-Lane Blacktop (1971), as well as films that depict outsiders, as in Terrence Malick's Badlands (1973) and Bill Norton's Cisco Pike (1971), or hippies, drifters and loners, as in Jerry Schatzberg's The Panic in Needle Park (1971) and Bob Rafelson's Five Easy Pieces (1970). T
There will also be Westerns like Peter Fonda's The Hired Hand (1970), which reversed the traditional role of the cowboy, and the classics of "New Hollywood": Bogdanovich's The Last Picture Show (1971), Coppola's The Godfather I and II (1971/1974), Polanski's Chinatown (1974).
The Retrospective of the Berlin International Film Festival 2004 is being organised by the Filmmuseum Berlin - Deutsche Kinemathek under the supervision of Hans Helmut Prinzler.
It is being held in cooperation with the Osterreichische Filmmuseum, Vienna.
"The political and social upheavals of this era brought forth a form of cinema which even from today's perspective contributed to one of the most exciting developments in film. Movies like Easy Rider influenced an entire generation. And it was the decline of the old Hollywood studio system which made the birth of the 'independent' scene possible", Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick said about the Retrospective 2004.
