July 2011 Entry #16 Altamont Augie
Author: Richard Barager
Trailer Creator: Cole Barager
A startlingly vivid portrayal of one of the most colorful and turbulent periods in recent American history: the 1960s, as seen through the eyes of two ill-fated college lovers at odds over Vietnam. Their story and the story of their generation spill onto a tableau of some of the era’s most iconic settings—the legendary battleground of Khe Sanh; a Midwestern campus riven by dissent; and Altamont Speedway, scene of the notorious rock festival profiled in the film Gimme Shelter. To David Noble, the faltering war in Vietnam is a failure of national honor; to Jackie Lundquist it is a failure of national conscience. But neither her rise to fame as the antiwar movement’s alluring Radical Queen nor David’s defiant counter-protest activities in support of the war can extinguish their passion for one another.Their love endures, even while fighting on opposite sides of the defining issue of their time. Let the richly satisfying story of David and Jackie transport you to a Sixties state of mind.
