Produced by University of Texas at Austin students Cary White and Greg McGee, this 1975 film explores the youth subculture of the 1960s and 1970s. After getting into a car accident, the lead character finds himself in an alternative universe, which forces him to reflect upon his existence. In doing so, the film highlights various components of the hippie movement, including political activism, psychedelic drugs, communal living, music, and antiestablishment philosophy. Dancy Street, also titled Dancy Street Museum, was nominated for a Student Film Award (now known as a Student Academy Award). After graduating from the University of Texas, White began a career as a production designer and art director, working on Selena (1997), Spy Kids (2001), and Mean Girls (2004) as well a the Friday Night Lights television series. McGee also began a career in the film industry, making promotional and industrial films. Bill Mackie was a professor in the Radio-Television-Film Department at the University of Texas. He now works as an independent broadcast media professional. PLEASE NOTE: This film contains strong language and representations of drug use. Viewer discretion advised.
