Born Dropped Out

The Hippie Kid Stories:

Unedited interviews of children of hippies displayed as short video clips that you choose how to view. Participants answered the same 20 questions with no interviewer prompting them as they looked at the camera. Hippie kids, now in their 30s and 40s, were chosen as an example of how an interesting subject could be explored in a way that encouraged viewers to explore media and come to their own conclusions.

When asked what was good about her childhood, one participant says: “I was high-priestess at my dad’s second wedding.” That pretty much nails it. :)

    A very interesting post, Barry. Also, an interesting example of internet peep culture. For the most part, I found these children of hippies to be apologists for their parent’s lifestyle. As for their own hippy leanings…not a hippy in the bunch…more like degrees of leftist thinking. Myself, I’m so damn left, I make hippies look right wing…
