'Jaws' va causar un gran impacte en el seu moment

1970s Hollywood film cycle at the Filmoteca

The cycle, which runs from August to September, features films like Taxi Driver, Chinatown and Jaws

Peter Bisking published a popular book in 1998 titled Easy Riders, Raging Bulls in which he claimed that 1970s Hollywood cinema had been saved by “a generation brought up on sex, drugs and rock and roll”. During August and September, the Filmoteca de Catalunya will appropriate the title of that book for a cycle of films, many of which were very successful at the time of their release, which breathed new life into US cinema.

Dennis Hoppers Easy Rider is a fitting beginning for the cycle. It will be screened on 2 August. It will be followed by well-known films like The Godfather, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Chinatown, Jaws, American Graffiti and The Last Detail. In summary, the Filmoteca is set to become a space in which cinemagoers can view again films made some 40 years ago and which marked a whole generation of filmmakers such as George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg and Robert Altman. Another highlight of the cycle is a documentary on the book written by Bisking, directed by Kenneth Bowser, which will be screened at 5pm on 31 August.
