An innocent form of emotional exploration and experimentation
10 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hippy nudist alien guru camp documentary. Very interesting and entertaining. Especially the basic theme of common emotions of guilt and jealousy everyone struggles with. Far from being cult like as one would expect, it's seems more like a innocent exercise of emotional exploration and experimentation. The music and editing work is also surprisingly good.

I ran into this documentary intrigued by its synopsis and not knowing what to expect which is how i think the people in the workshop approached the experience. Would have liked to hear more on the alien theme though.

Enlightenment guaranteed, clothing optional.
