WBCN and The American Revolution is a landmark feature documentary that tells the previously untold story of the early days of the underground, radical radio station, WBCN-FM, set against the dazzling and profound social, political, and cultural changes in Boston and nationally from the late-1960s through the early-1970s.
The documentary includes never before exhibited film material shot by Andy Warhol and cinema verite pioneer Ricky Leacock, and photographic images from a host of top 1960s photographers including the late Peter Simon, brother of singer Carly Simon, who also appears in the film, and Jeff Albertson.
