Communal life is idiosyncratically portrayed through a series of theatrical happenings and ruptures. Young hippies in Devon dress up as minstrels and would-be revolutionaries, acting out strange, controversial encounters in an underground labyrinth. This manifestation and visual manifesto for the freak scene era of British counterculture is little seen and very open in form.
Directed by Jim Weiss, Chris Maudson and John Phillips.
