Miloš Forman‘s adaptation of the tribal rock musical Hair stars John Savage as Claude, a quiet young man from the Midwest who becomes friendly with a group of New York hippies on his way to begin basic training in the military. The repressed Claude is quite taken with Berger (Treat Williams) and the group of freedom seekers who reside in Central Park.
Screening as part of the BFI’s UK-wide programme exploring the cinema and legacy of 1968, joining the dots between that period and our own turbulent times.
