abstract
"Expect the unexpected". The author of this slogan was young French artist Tomi Ungerer. He not only designed this Village Voice campaign and many others, he also published a dozen children's books, created political posters and wrote social satire. It was during a time of Cultural Revolution: the anti-segregation movement, political riots and anti-Vietnam war protests, but also Peace and Love, the Rock revolution and the miniskirt. At the center of it all, New York, where you could expect the unexpected. This film takes you on a journey to the America and New York of the 1960s with a very unique guide, Tomi Ungerer. He brings us back to the heart of what would be called the golden age of American culture. But it is not a nostalgic trip. Instead, it's an explanation of the forces that shaped today's America and predicts how the US will develop in the future.
