    The Human Be-in (which a great deal of the people we have interviewed for this Film helped put together) drew at least 35,000 people with virtually no conventional publicity, mostly word of mouth. They realized that by the time school let out in April, or May that we would be inundated by literally tens of thousands of young people from all over the world.

    I know a free spirited young woman who”s just flying off to Tenerrife at the drop of a hat. I told her you belong in the sixties. Then I realised she would be fascinated by all the stories of teenagers who just took off with no money, and sometimes no shoes, and could hitchhike all over the world and somehow get away with it. Think I have a few stories myself but there are millions out there. “We all took off our clothes on the beach and danced away til dawn” sort of thing. “One day I was working in an office in the city, 24 hrs later I was watching the sunrise over the mountains having completely left behind my previous life”. etc. The movie I Love You Alice B Toklas has a flavour of it.
