“Way out and weird!” A documentary, still called a newsreel at the time, from British Pathe explores the fashions, language, and culture of the youth of London in 1967. They had miniskirts, paper dresses, and “happenings.” The narrator doesn’t understand whether they are rebelling against traditional British ways or just developing their own style. It was some of both, but the deeper issues of the Cold War, racial tensions, feminism, war, and drugs are ignored. Even music is barely touched upon, so of course it all looks weird presented this way. -via Laughing Squid
