Process Media presents: The Modern Utopian (feat. Rainbow Bridge!)

Back to the Land. Urban homesteads. Sustainable cooperatives. The movement that swept the nation in the ’70s is back with a passion. Economic, permaculture, and social concerns have drawn thousands across the country to rediscover the benefits of collective living. The new Process Media book “The Modern Utopian” is the definitive examination of the alternative communities in the ‘60s and ‘70s, documented by those who knew it and lived it—from the fabled Drop City to Morningstar Ranch, Timothy Leary at Millbrook to Detroit’s Translove Energies and the still-thriving Stephen Gaskin’s Farm. Join Process’s Jodi Wille as she leads a conversation with members of a new generation (mostly in their 20s and 30s) of intentional communities in LA and New Mexico!

Afterwards, Process presents a rare screening of the 1972 documentary/concert film Rainbow Bridge. This gem of occult/commune ’70s cinema features Warhol stars Pat Hartley and Chuck Wein, Dr. Bronner, cosmic surfers, black power soul sisters, clairvoyant shamans, Jesus freaks, and the actual inhabitants of a chic mansion commune in Maui called the “Rainbow Bridge Occult Research Meditation Center.” Then, Jimi Hendrix drops in, and on the slopes of the Haleakala volcano, he performs for his penultimate live concert in the U.S. before his departure from the planet only two months later! Come early to the evening’s show, and share wine and snacks with our special guests on the back patio. Join us!
