        Following Sean: San Francisco in the 1960s

        This lesson plan is designed to be used in conjunction with the film Following Sean, a reflective look at how life in San Francisco in the turbulent 1960s has influenced two families: the filmmaker's and that of a four-year-old boy who was the subject of a short film made by the filmmaker in 1969. This lesson looks at clips of that short film in its historical context and asks students to conduct a video interview that reflects modern times.

        Following Sean: Behind the Lens with Filmmaker Ralph Arlyck (Clip 1 of 3)

        In this clip, the filmmaker talks about the similarities and differences between himself and his subject, Sean, and between the Baby Boomer generation and Generation X.
