08 October 2018 Comments Off on This Week at Bilkent Cinematics: Hair

Bilkent Cinematics will be screening Miloš Forman’s 1979 antiwar musical film ‘“Hair” on Wednesday, October 10.

Based on the 1968 Broadway musical “Hair: An American Tribal Love–Rock Musical,” the film follows the lives of two men against the backdrop of the hippie counterculture of the Vietnam era. Claude Bukowski (John Savage), a newly drafted young man from Oklahoma, goes on a self-guided tour of New York before his draft-board appointment. There he meets Sheila Franklin (Beverly D’Angelo) and George Berger (Treat Williams), the leader of a tightly knit “tribe” of hippies, all of whom give his life a new spin.

“Hair” screens on Wednesday, October 10, at 6 p.m. in FB309.

Everyone is welcome to attend Cinematics film screenings. All movies are shown in their original language with English subtitles, and snacks and beverages are always served.
