Eye on the Sixties is a visually and emotionally stylistic essay on the art and craft of photojournalism. It echoes the belief that the human abilities to visualize and to care are the best creative allies. It casts a fresh eye on a dramatic decade through the example of one man's journey from the Peace Corps in 1961, to the emotionally powerful March On Washington-- to JFK, Dylan at Newport, the Beatles first concert in America, LIFE magazine essays with Barbara Walters, Arthur Ashe, Robert F. Kennedy, Judy Collins, and the inevitable closing of the decade at Woodstock. The film touches upon the creative impulse, the sense of free-spirit, and the beginnings of old age. The film travels with Scherman to the recent 50th Anniversary of the creation of The Peace Corps in Washington, D.C., to the site of the 1963 Newport Folk Festival, to the the October chilled air where the Woodstock Festival was held, and to the windswept hills of Truro, Massachusetts on Cape Cod where Scherman moves today in a kind of peace, laced with humor, hope, and reality. The film concludes on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, with Scherman standing out in a crowd of ubiquitous amateur photographers, so fully aware yet partly invisible, armed with his camera, with one eye on the past and one on the future, and offering up some final encouraging words of wisdom to those who carry within the hope to one day express themselves.
