JOHN F. KENNEDY: YEARS OF LIGHTNING, DAY OF DRUMS

(1965, Bruce Herschensohn) “But all of this was in the early 1960s, and the early 1960s will someday be a long time ago.” The Kennedy years, devastatingly intercut with the day (exactly 50 years ago) the whole world watched, the funeral day of drums. Originally made for the U.S. Information Agency — intended for export only — now a time capsule of events and attitudes. Produced by George Stevens, Jr. Courtesy John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Approx. 85 min. DCP.
