In 1988, filmmaker Kevin Tomlinson filmed & interviewed a group of back-to-the-land ”hippies”—living off-grid, insulated from mainstream culture.
In 2006 he tracked down his subjects again to find out what had become of their families’ utopian plans and dreams.
The film captures a time-lapse view of these back-to-the-landers told with moving personal stories of dedicated tribal families—lots of freedom but little cash, unflinching grass-roots activism and hippie kids who today ask whether free love was really free.
The film will be followed by a Q&A session with the director and three of the back-to-the-land stars, and then an open space with food and live music by DigitalDeb and Harvey Swanson.
For those who would like to come early, DigitalDeb and Harvey Swanson will be performing from 5:30-6:00pm also.
Baked goods will be provided for donation to the relief efforts in Japan (Peace Winds America)
