DocFest: THE END OF THE ROAD
First show: June 04
It’s the end of the road and people who are at the end of their line come to Lund? Peter Behr
For many Americans, Canada doesn’t?t exist. For a brief time though in the late 60?s and early 70?s American?s fleeing the Vietnam War looked to their neighbors to the north for refuge. Not only did some of these so called ?hippy draft dodgers? find Canada, they accidentally found their way to Lund.
Raised in cities with no wilderness experience other than reading Little House on the Prairie, this eclectic group of ?back to the landers,” dreamers, artists, intellectuals and freedom fighters created the society they wanted to be part of. They experimented, found love, lost love and shared love. They were known as the most educated, underemployed population, where the most confusing holiday was fathers day. Lund is still a haven for those searching for Utopia. The Sixties are over, but they are not as over here as they are in some places!
Directed by Tai Ulmann, Canada. 114 min.
Co-presented with Mill Valley Film Festival
