Directed by Ralph Bakshi | 1981
"A dazzling display of talent, nerve, ideas (old and new), passion and a marvelously free sensibility. The man may well be a genius…"
—The New York Times

The history of 20th-century popular music, from vaudeville to punk rock, is related via the story of four generations of Russian Jewish immigrants in Bakshi’s sprawling, astoundingly ambitious musical saga. The film’s hallucinatory visuals (achieved with Rotoscoping) accompany a dynamite soundtrack that includes songs by Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Jimi Hendrix, the Sex Pistols, and more. World premiere of a new DCP restoration.
