  • “Sunday” (1961) is Dan Drasin’s first documentary short, shot in a single afternoon in Greenwich Village; it is often cited as the first major social protest film of the 1960s. When 19-year-old Drasin and his friends joined folk singers and protesters in Greenwich Village’s Washington Square Park, they confronted NYC police to protest the cancellation of a standing permit to gather and sing in the park on Sundays.

  • The Living Theatre (est. 1947) was the first experimental theatre group in the United States, and helped ensure the flourishing of New York’s famed underground art scene in the decades that followed. After more than a decade of successfully producing original, radical, dramatic works and adaptations of works by renowned authors such as Bertold Brecht and Gertrud Stein, the Theatre’s founders, Judith Malina and Julian Beck, made their space and resources available to experimental film screenings and literary benefits.
  • Kulchur Magazine was the literary critical journal of the New American Poetry group, which published quarterlies from 1960 to 1965, and featured works by William S. Burroughs, Paul Bowles, and Allen Ginsberg.
