Freak Out! The Alternative Movement Begins U.K Germany.
Freak Out! – The Alternative Movement Begins by 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.
This creative documentary mixes interviews, archive and animation in a beautiful combination, bringing you straight back to the early 1900 as seen through the eyes of these young radicals.
