During the filmmaking revolution of the 1960s and 70s, Bruce Dern emerged as the epitome of a new breed of American movie star. A virtuoso character actor who specialized in complicated, messed-up men, Dern made his mark in many of the definitive counterculture movies of the era.

In conjunction with the release of his new film, Nebraska—for which he received the Best Actor award at Cannes—BAMcinématek pays tribute to this ever-surprising actor. All films starring Bruce Dern.
