Documentery of Interest – for those in Southern California Area

Thought this would be of interest to the list: a film documentary showing Sept. 10 and 11, description copied from their website:

“The sixties and seventies were turbulent times, but on Kauai’s north shore there was a safe haven—the ultimate hippie fantasy. In 1969, Elizabeth Taylor’s brother, Howard, bailed out 13 young Mainlanders jailed on Kauai for vagrancy, and invited them to camp on his oceanfront land. Soon waves of hippies, surfers and troubled Vietnam vets found their way to Taylor Camp and built a clothing-optional, pot-friendly tree house village at the end of the North Shore Road. It lasted until 1977 when, after condemning the village to make way for a State park, government officials torched the camp. Thirty years later, the story of Taylor Camp is told through historic photos and film footage, and interviews with campers, their neighbors, and the officials who got rid of them.”
