Back to the Garden

Available on iTunes, Prime Video
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.
