This isn't a movie, this is a message....

a message for people to look INSIDE themselves.

A beautiful, endearing film. You have to admire people who are true to their convictions and consistently live what they believe.

Great Trailer! Met my real dad when I was 23 ( now 42 ) and had a chance to experience a little life on the "Saddle". My dad, Rome Contreras lived up there before his cabin burned down in 2000. He is in Maui now. I wish I had been able to live the life that he lived up there for 30 years. I grew up in LA so go figure. This film has to be huge for them! I am inspired for the ones this film was intended for. Anyway, I am now making indie films and watching this trailer again just motivated me even more...THANKS!!!!

Although I wasn't around back in the early days and am now living on the grid and fairly engaged in mainstream life, my heart and values are certainly expressed in this film. Thanks for making the film.

It's a great expression of LOVE , HOPE & COMMUNITY!

Kevin and Judy,

It was great to visit with you in Sebastopol, thank you for the film. The whole family enjoyed it and engaged in a spirited discussion of the "back to the land" movement. It got me searching for more information regarding 2 of our local communes, Morningstar and Wheeler Ranch. Good luck to you, i hope your film had an excellent reception in Oz.

Mike Sims and Suzanne Visser of Alice's Secret in Alice Springs, Australia watched the movie on a lazy sunny afternoon in the Outback

Saw the movie together with Mike this afternoon. Very moving. These young faces and then the same faces: older, old. Done with a lot of respect for the owners of these faces. Which makes the film good. Food for some thinking too. Full circle indeed. I have such a love hate relationship with hippies that it was painfully pleasant to watch it all.

Thanks

Suzanne

I am grateful to have seen the movie and really glad I have the DVD to watch again. The movie has me thinking about my life and how I can live it in a way that is more true to my beliefs. Thanks for the inspiration. The other thing is that I am reminded about time. This movie came back around after 20 years. Whew, we live in a culture of immediate gratification. We really don't know what the seeds planted today will bring in years to come. Trust, faith, love, and tree hugging!!!

Peace, Celia

Hullo, Folks: I just learned of your film and ordered a copy. But after reading through all the great comments, I figured I'd 'write ahead' and point folks to the Morningstar and Wheeler Ranch 24-chapter history (see link to the S. F. Digger site) and photos, etc. at the website above.

I always viewed our open-gate 'come-as-you-are' communities as the southern gate to the Kingdom of New Albion. City folks could try out country living with us and see if it fit. Occasionally a Wheeler neighborhood would morph into an extended family and take wing to the north to find their own spot on Mother Gaia, far away from inflated property values triggered the punitive use of building and health codes. MOre after I've viewed the film. Can't wait!
