Jim Henson’s Youth ’68
Location: Redstone Theater
Please note time change to 6:30 p.m.
50th Anniversary Screening with Peter Goldfarb, Karen Falk, and Craig Shemin in person
Dir. Jon Stone. Produced by Jim Henson. 1968, 52 mins. Featuring The Mamas and the Papas, Grace Slick, Marty Balin. In 1968, Jim Henson created the first of two episodes he made for NBC’s anthology series Experiment in Television. Exploring war, religion, music, sex, and other topics, Youth ‘68 combined film and video techniques to create what Henson called a collage. To mark its 50th anniversary, the Museum will screen a new high-definition transfer of the kinescope and present recently uncovered outtakes and excerpts from the original film elements. Peter Goldfarb, producer of NBC’s Experiment in Television, and Karen Falk, Archives Director for the Jim Henson Company, will join Craig Shemin, President of the Jim Henson Legacy, to present the program.
