EYE ON THE 60s is an authentic piece of American History… an intimate portrait of former LIFE photographer Rowland Scherman and how his photographic eye captured the essence of America's most remarkable decade. Experience candid recollections with seldom seen moments of major celebrities, politicians, and breathtaking events. Follow the path of a self-driven man who became the first Peace Corps photographer, an insider to the Kennedy and Shriver families, and who created an astounding record of The March On Washington. Travel with Scherman through time to witness the young Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Arthur Ashe, Barbara Walters, Joni Mitchell, and Judy Collins. From Washington, D.C. to the site of the 1969 Woodstock Festival and to the healing vistas of Cape Cod, EYE ON THE 60s is the story of a man that despite technological change and the great passage of time, moves in a space of peace, humor, and hope… while remaining forever driven by the need to create.

EYE ON THE 60s was the Winner of the Best Documentary Award at the 2013 Fairhope Film Festival; an Audience Award Winner at the 2013 Sidewalk Film Festival; and an Official Selection at the 2013 Edindocs Documentary Film Festival.
