Enews Gen X

Bite Me: Generation X on Film

Saturdays, Oct 12 – Nov 9, 10 am to 1 pm | Dundee Micro

In this five-week Course we delve into the films, music videos, and television shows of the late 80s and early 90s to investigate what defines a generation and a genre. Watching films by directors like Richard Linklater and John Singleton, and with stars like Christian Slater and Claire Danes, we trace the origins of Generation X and look at how the political ideologies and economic pressures faced by young Americans made their way into popular culture. Additionally, we look at how the Gen X aesthetic — sarcastic, rebellious, and deeply dissatisfied with the banality of life — defined a cycle of films that changed the landscape of independent and mainstream cinema.
