Double Feature!
Introduction to TAKING OFF by screenwriter John Klein.
1979, Park Circus/MGM, 121 min, West Germany/USA, Dir: Milos Forman

Milos Forman’s adaptation of the tribal rock musical stars John Savage as Claude, a quiet young man from the Midwest who becomes friendly with a group of New York hippies as he's on his way to begin basic training in the military. The repressed Claude is quite taken with Berger (Treat Williams) and the group of freedom seekers who reside in Central Park. The group encourages Claude to go after a debutante named Sheila (Beverly D'Angelo). Legendary choreographer Twyla Tharp masterminded the dances, which flow from the natural settings of the film. With most of the better-known songs from the original play, including “Aquarius,” “Let the Sunshine In,” “Good Morning Starshine” and the title number.

35 mm!

1971, Universal, 93 min, USA, Dir: Milos Forman

Director Milos Forman’s first American film is a warm and hilariously subversive comedy about parents trying to cope with their runaway children. The focus is on bewildered Buck Henry and Lynn Carlin as they try to deal with daughter Linnea Heacock’s flight to Greenwich Village hippie life - and they end up expanding their consciousness as much as she does!
