Narrated by actor Robert Mitchum, this documentary takes a sympathetic yet critical look at the late 1960s counterculture movement. With scenes in San Francisco, London, Nepal, Rome, and Istanbul, the film argues that hippies' excessive drug use is dangerous, and that “dropping out” won’t solve the problems of society. George Washington University and the National Institute of Mental Health produced the film. close
