I am a French-Dutch filmmaker and I would like to do a film for the French TV, about the Rainbow Family: a utopic and hippy community.
The main idea aims to understand who are the people who live currently a hippy life, what does it mean concretely in every day life and why did they choose this way of living.
I would like to follow and interview families, members of the Rainbow from its beginnings and youngest people who chose recently to be a part of this community.
The better way to realize this project would be to be able to meet members and follow them a few days in their everyday life, to understand what they are standing for, in what do they believe, what they are working on.
I would like to follow them also at the annual gathering in July, where my story would end.
I think today more than ever, it is important to put forward communities such as the Rainbow Family, to show another way of living and communicate the values of the Rainbow.
For the filming, we will be a small crew of two people. The cameraman and myself. We are very discrete and friendly. We will use a small camera, a 5D, which makes beautiful pictures. We are very attached to the aesthetic of the film.
