The 1970's was an extraordinary time of rebellion, and of questioning every accepted idea. As political activism, the sexual revolution, the women's movement, and the music revolution contributed to social unrest across the country, American cinema witnessed the emergence of a new generation of filmmakers. Galvanised by a new freedom of expression, these ground-breaking artists began targeting their films toward a new kind of audience, with stories that reflected the ever-changing reality of the era.

A love letter to an amazing period in film, A DECADE UNDER THE INFLUENCE, enlists a cast of pioneering writers, directors, and actors to talk about the times, their films, and their colleagues. Luminaries such as Francis Ford Coppola, William Friedkin, Sydney Pollack, Julie Christie, and Ellen Burstyn reveal intricate, personal and often untold stories about their experiences.

And interspersing these interviews with a virtual cinematic scrapbook of the decade, filmmakers Richard LaGravenese and Ted Demme include a cornucopia of clips from such classics as Easy Rider, Midnight Cowboy, Taxi Driver, The Godfather, and Coming Home. The result is a fantastic celebration of the artists and films that left a lasting stamp on America's national cinema and identity.
