Sustainable Design Film Series: Back to the Garden

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. 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 non-conforming tribal families with a lot of freedom but little cash, unflinching political activism in the midst of small-town, rural America, and hippie kids who ask whether free love was really free.
