“Soviet Hippies” screening, Manchester

10.10.2019 18:20

A wild flower power ride in the footprints of the Soviet hippie movement take you into the psychedelic underground of 1970s. In search of freedom and happiness under the thumb of political regimes a colourful crowd of artists, musicians, freaks, vagabonds and other long-haired dropouts created their own system in the Soviet Union. Years later, a group of eccentric hippies from Estonia take a road journey to Moscow where people still gather annually on the 1st June to commemorate a tragic event in 1971, when thousands of hippies were arrested by the KGB.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Terje Toomistu.
