The history of the Black Bear Ranch, a Northern California commune established in 1968, is explored in this challenging documentary. Envisioned as a Utopia where bourgeois values would be discarded, the community ultimately experienced the compromise and evolution typical of any society...even one devoted to alternative parenting, free love, and nude farming. Community alumni (including actor Peter Coyote) appear in interviews. 78 min. Soundtrack: English; biographies; bonus footage; interview; theatrical trailers.
