Overview

Overview

In the 1960s and '70s, young people in America were caught up in a wave of political and social activism, speaking out about racism, civil rights, free speech, war, police brutality, and a number of other matters, doing so in a wide variety of ways. In the 21st century, youth activism is no longer in vogue, and apathy and a belief that the system is beyond changing have become common among contemporary students. What caused these changes? What can be done to engage young people in the political process? And what sorts of youngsters are still involved in activism? Filmmaker Phillip Montgomery addresses these issues in his documentary ReGeneration, in which the changing tides of political opinion and media coverage are examined. The film also profiles three different groups of young people -- a band of leftist musicians and activists, a young family of conservatives, and a handful of high-school students, who discuss their future and their political views. ReGeneration also includes interviews from Howard Zinn, Amy Goodman, Noam Chomsky, Mos Def, and Talib Kweli; Ryan Gosling, who helped produce the film, narrates.
