In 1969 two members of the class of 1964 attended Yale reunions carrying a 16mm camera and a tape recorder. Beforehand they also interviewed some atypical Yale alumni in Los Angeles. The result was a collage of impressionistic vignettes ranging from poignant to surreal capturing not only the diverse aspects of the event but also a moment at the cusp of a culture.
1969 was the year Yale College first admitted women and the year that Yale became the first major university to offer a degree in Afro-American Studies. 1969 was also the height of the Vietnam War and Students for a Democratic Society (SDS).
Among those interviewed are Cleanth Brooks, Arthur Hadley, Willie Ruff, Phil Proctor and Peter Bergman. There is also a performance by the legendary Sleepy Hall playing banjo for his 1924 classmates.
