This book tracks the changing of the guard in the 1970s from the classic Hollywood studio system to a new generation of filmmakers who made personal movies targeted primarily to a thirty-and-under audience. These filmmakers reinvented the content and aesthetics of the medium to show that movies can be more than entertainment.
