Set in the psychedelic paradise of Pepperland, Yellow Submarine (1968) pits Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band against the Blue Meanies, enemies of fun and music. Director George Dunning and art director Heinz Eidelmann employ a constantly-shifting array of 60s pop art settings in this revolutionary animated feature, which has inspired directors ranging from Terry Gilliam to John Lasseter. On its 50th anniversary, the film retains its ability to dazzle from its opening scene to the sing-a-long final credits. Artist and writer Bill Morrison (The Beatles Yellow Submarine graphic novel) will join moderator Joe Palladino (Film and Media Studies, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion.Beatles Revolutions When the Beatles burst onto the musical scene in the early 1960s, they reflected the eras great idealism and its frenzy of political protest and debate, producing music that would become synonymous with the decade itself. The CWCs winter series Beatles Revolutions examines the ways in which the band was central to broader revolutions in music, culture, and politics. The series spans documentary, animation, and fictionalized versions of the Beatles lives, and will feature distinguished guests who have written about, toured with, and produced music for the Beatles. This event is sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center, the Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Music (CISM), and KCSB-FM.
