about the film:
Coinciding with Michael Caine’s milestone 85th birthday, on Wednesday 14th March the engaging and evocative documentary, MY GENERATION will broadcast LIVE via satellite from the BFI Southbank to cinemas across the UK and Ireland followed by a Q&A with the iconic star.
Michael Caine narrates and stars in My Generation, the vivid and inspiring story of his personal journey through 1960s London. Based on personal accounts and stunning archive footage this feature-length documentary film sees Caine travel back in time to talk to The Beatles, Twiggy, David Bailey, Mary Quant, The Rolling Stones, David Hockney and other star names.
The film has been painstakingly assembled over the last six years by Caine, working with producer Simon Fuller, writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais and director David Batty to tell the story of the birth of pop culture in London, through the eyes of the young Michael Caine.
Michael Caine became a global movie star, but My Generation reveals how he was lucky to secure his first big break in ‘Zulu’ (1966), and how many other seminal sixties figures had to fight just to be noticed.
My Generation uses carefully intercut audio of Caine's conversations and previously unseen archive material to take the movie viewer back to the heart of the 1960s.
Joan Collins, Roger Daltrey, Marianne Faithful, Lulu, Paul McCartney and Twiggy also feature in My Generation.
