Celebrating Woodstock week !
Snag films' Description :
' In the 1960s and 1970s thousands of hippies journeyed East
in the search for enlightenment, free drugs or a ‘pure’ life.
Indian peasants assumed that a severe drought in the West
was the reason for their migration. India’s holy men saw it, more
accurately, as a search for spirituality. Most moved back to their
home countries after a few months or years. Some stayed for
good. HIPPIE MASALA shows aging flower children who, after
fleeing Western civilization, found a new home in India.'
