Hippie Masala: Forever In India (DVD)
Directed by Damaris Luthi and Ulrich Grossenbacher
In the 1960s and 1970s thousands of hippies journeyed east to India in search of enlightenment, free drugs or a 'pure' life. Indian peasants assumed that a severe drought in the West was the reason for their migration. India's holy men saw it, more accurately, as a search for spirituality. Most moved back to their home countries after a few months or years. Some stayed for good. Cesare, an Italian expatriate, is still there searching and striving for spiritual liberation through back-breaking yoga. Hanspeter, a man originally from Switzerland, runs a small farm in the Himalayas. Erica and Gillian, South African twins, sew hippie handicrafts by day and party tirelessly at night. HIPPIE MASALA is a fascination chronicle about aging flower children who, after fleeing Western civilization, found a new way of life in India.
