Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia

These stills from Bruce Connor's 1965 film, BREAKAWAY, are reproduced from the Walker Art Center's 448-page, beautifully designed and action-packed catalogue to the museum's current exhibition, Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia. This five minute, black-and-white film featuring Toni Basil performing her first single, also titled BREAKAWAY, "is often cited as an early, perhaps even the first example, of a music video. BREAKAWAY transcends this often banal epithet with Connor's masterful handheld cinematography and precise editing, creating a seamless fusion of sound and moving image."
