Documentary by the German filmmaker Marcus Robbin about Goa, India. The film compares the 60s and 70s hippie era with the situation in 2000 and works without commentary and consists of documentation of the ongoing party culture in Goa, as well as private and previously unreleased Super 8 footage from the sixties and seventies in Goa, filmed by Cleo Odzer. This material is the only existing contemporary film document of the hippie days in Goa. Furthermore, interviews with hippie veterans like Goa Gil, Francisco Sardinha, describe the clashes that occur between the party culture and Indian conservatism.
The last part of the documentary is shot at the Berlin Love Parade, where the protagonists reflect about their own spiritual development and the changes that have happened since the hippie movement had started.
The film was shot in December 99 and January 2000 with an estimated budget of $20.000. Since 2004, it has been distributed by Nowonmedia.
