Beginning with the title song, "It's a Mod Mod World" by the Gretschmen, "Mondo Mod" explores West Hollywood, California's famous Sunset Strip in 1966. We journey from discotheques to dirt bike competitions, taking in surfing, karate, go-carting, the Hell's Angels, political protests, pot parties and all the other trappings of the Now Generation. Along the way, we're treated to priceless footage of Pandora's Box, Gazzarri's, the Whisky A Go-Go, the Fifth Estate, and countless other forgotten haunts of "the neon Neverland that the mod set calls home." Starring, according to the credits, "The Youth of the World," "Mondo Mod" features a pot-smoking, bongo-blasting finale during which these hipsters and flipsters start to strip down. Both the film's cinematographers became world-famous: Laszlo Kovacks for "Easy Rider," and Vilmos Szigmond for "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." Written by
