FREAK OUT! - THE ALTERNATIVE MOVEMENT BEGINS

Director:  Carl Javér

Long-haired barefoot people. Free love! Veganism! Experiments with drugs... The sixties, right? Not quite.In the year 1900 a group of middle class kids revolted against their time and started the original alternative community - Monte Verità, the mountain of truth. A community based on veganism, feminism, pacifism and free love.Incorporating interviews, archive and animation, the documentary is a beautiful, creative amalgamation that takes the viewer back to the early 1900s, as seen through the eyes of these young radicals.
