Storyline

In 1988 director Kevin Tomlinson interviewed a group of back-to-the-land hippies at a 'healing gathering' in rural Washington State practicing peace and love. Now, in this poignant examination of this community over time, he tracks down those original interviewees and their children twenty years later to find out what the glories and sufferings of living out of the mainstream and off the grid might really look like.

A rare and insightful film
3 March 2017 | by screed-71214See all my reviews

Back to the Garden is a rare film. None other addresses the back to the earth movement with such honesty, documenting the lure as well as the drawbacks. As a chronicle of flower children growing up, it grants us an even rarer glimpse into where a core of the generation of love landed. And then this film takes us even further, into how the movement has evolved, and ultimately reveals to us the simple hope and humanity found in working for a kinder, more peaceful world. Beliefs developed as youths matured into a continuing commitment to mindfulness in a way we can not only understand, but hopefully recognize some of ourselves within. Back to the Garden is a powerfully gentle film, proving love can be the greatest of denominators among us.
