My Generation is Sir Michael Caine’s documentary about and homage to the Swinging '60s and ‘the decade that changed the world’. This film is presented as part of the programme for this year’s Rossendale 60s Festival. 

My Generation is directed by David Batty and scripted by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais (writers of many a classic TV series including The Likely Lads and Auf Wiedersehen, Pet).  The film is narrated by Michael Caine himself, and features archive 1960s footage not only of Caine but of many of his sixties contemporaries including Sandie Shaw, Marianne Faithfull, Sir Paul McCartney, Mary Quant, Twiggy and Roger Daltrey. The footage is accompanied by a superb musical soundtrack featuring hits from the era by (amongst many others) The Kinks, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

Told in three parts, it roughly corresponds to the awakening, the flourishing and the decline of 1960s pop culture.  

A sloppy wet kiss to Michael Caine and British youth culture of the 1960s. Loaded with great footage from the era and accompanied by superbly cleaned-up music tracks from the Kinks, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and many others, this love letter-as-documentary offers 85 minutes of good old fun
