“Cinema ’62 A-Go-Go” is more than a book talk, more than a Q&A, more than an interview. In a variety show format, it re-examines the year in film and everything in between as we delve into the cultural context of when these films were made – with special guests, cocktails of the era, major amounts of music, prophetic politics and even a little dancing.
