“A brilliantly thrilling look back at the flowering of creativity and freethinking spirit of 1960s London, through the thoroughly charming perspective of Michael Caine.” – Mary Ann Johanson, Flick Filosopher

“Many of the anecdotes and insights here will already be familiar to anyone with even a passing knowledge of the period but that doesn’t reduce in the slightest the nostalgic pleasure that the film provides throughout.” – Geoffrey Macnab, Independent UK

 

British film icon Michael Caine narrates and stars in My Generation, the vivid and inspiring story of his personal journey through 1960s London. Based on personal accounts and stunning archive footage, this feature-length documentary film sees Caine travel back in time to talk to The Beatles, Twiggy, David Bailey, Mary Quant, The Rolling Stones, David Hockney and other star names. The film has been painstakingly assembled over the last six years to tell the story of the birth of pop culture in London, through the eyes of the young Michael Caine: For the first time in history the young working class stood up for ourselves and said: “We’re here, this is our society and were not going away!”

 

Won – Fondazione Mimmo Rotella Award (Michael Caine), Venice Film Festival, 2017
Nominated – Best Foreign Music Trailer, Golden Trailer Awards, 2018
