Images of 1960s Radical Activism into Contemporary Films

21st Century Films Using Harvey Richards Media Archive Images

As more and more film makers put Harvey Richards Media Archive images of 1960s radical activism into contemporary films, I stopped for a moment to review what’s happened so far this century.  I found a surprising list of films, museums, national monuments, books and other publications who have drawn on the collection. This post features some, but not all, of the films using video and images from the archive. Next: books, museums, national monuments. Click on the movie posters below to go to web sites about the films.
