Synopsis

British film icon Michael Caine narrates and stars in 'My Generation', a vivid and inspiring story of his personal journey through 1960s London. Based on personal accounts and stunning archive footage this documentary sees Caine travel back in time to talk to The Beatles, Twiggy, David Bailey, Mary Quant, The Rolling Stones, David Hockney and other star names.
The film has been painstakingly assembled over the last six years by Caine working with producer Simon Fuller, writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais and director David Batty. Telling the story of the birth of pop culture in London through the eyes of the young Michael Caine, and using carefully intercut audio of Caine's conversations with his co-stars blended with unseen archive material to take the viewer back to the heart of the 1960s.
“For the first time in history the young working class stood up for ourselves and said, we’re here, this is our society and we’re not going away!” (Michael Caine)
