Back to the Garden

Picture_7Documentary – 57/70min – a Heaven Scent Films’ production distributed by Esh Intermedia

In 1988, filmmaker Kevin Tomlinson filmed and interviewed a group of back-to-the-land ”hippies”—living off-grid, insulated and isolated from mainstream culture.
20 years later 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 non-conforming tribal families—with lots of freedom but little cash, of unflinching political activism in the midst of small-town, rural America, and hippie kids who ask whether free love was really free.
