NZ's fleeting counterculture

Back to the land (60s-70s)

Starting in the late 60s, many New Zealanders began leaving town to set up their own communities, in search of alternative ways to live. This looking back documentary travels to communes both long gone and still active, and tracks down many of those involved.

Unfortunately, Nambassa II was a mud-out ... then Prime Minister Norman Kirk, champion of the OHU scheme, died suddenly - some say mysteriously - one day at the beach.

Not very much film footage from this interesting era was ever taken. The wider picture is more interesting than what's being presented here.
