July 11 | Smiling Through the Apocalypse: Esquire in the 60's

Director: Thomas Hayes
(2013, Documentary, 98 minutes)

In the jungle of the American apocalypse of race, war, and demonstration, came Harold Hayes, the swinging editor and cultural provocateur of the iconic Esquire Magazine of the 1960s. With his son Tom as tour guide, Smiling Through the Apocalypse tells the story of how Hayes transformed Esquire Magazine into a stable of fearless, brash, and irreverent journalism of the most turbulent decade since the Civil War. By harnessing irony, satire and a novelistic approach to reporting current affairs, Hayes created a magazine where point-of-view and iconic art and photography were put first and foremost. Soho Taco food truck will be on-site for dining options.
