Join filmmakers Gregg Gibbs and Maura McCoy with narrator Peter Coyote to discuss their documentary seen recently at DocLands
In the late 1960s, wealthy businessman Don McCoy dropped out and started a commune at an estate in northern Marin called Rancho Olompali.
But McCoy’s dream of a utopian society was short-lived, and Olompali’s blissful first year was followed by a series of shocking tragedies that threaten its very existence.
Narrated by Peter Coyote, this riveting true story explores the concept of the hippie ideal and its impact on American culture.
