Hippie Movie

2008. Poland/USA. Directed by Christoph Draeger. Hippie Movie is a funny, romantic documentary about a "hippie" movement, named Tropolicalia, which was founded by Draeger in Warsaw as an ironic revisiting of San Francisco’s Summer of Love, 1967. The film meditates on the political, social, and cultural behavior associated with the hippie movement, which confronted many issues—rising social injustice, an unpopular war, ecological concerns—that seem to be making a comeback today. It is also a celebration of the inventions of 1960s rock music and, last but not least, a hallucinatory, post-psychedelic visual trip. In Polish, English; English subtitles. 53 min.
