Namnaste, Family -
I had the honor of handing the DVD made by New Jersey Films LLC entitled "WE LOVE YOU" to participants at the 2009 National Gathering - N.Y.Purple Gang's brunch.
Just curious about reactions from you-all to this documentary.
I told the producer, Johnathen, that I felt it was too short (He says a feature-leingh version may be in the works in the future)!
That aside, I wish there was more time to interview not just our Rainbow Elder friends - Garreck, Plunker, Grandpa Woodstock - et all - but some of the more marginalized members: Gutterpunks, anarchos, fairies, 'A' campers to kinda fill it out.
I also wanted to see an atempt to interview the ICT commander or the Feddies - get their take on it, but they seem very reluctant to make public comments. Gee, I wonder why?
The hipstory by Gareck and Plunker is facinating, as I wasn't aware of the deep connection to vets and peace activists that launched the Gatherings. Phew! As a vet it gives me goose-bumps. Also wanted to see what family thinks is going to happen next.
I am currently working on a simular project on the 2009 Gathering. I wanted to address the growing concerns about the problems with some of our younger participants bringing in hard drugs, alchohol and increasing theft but more importantly what can those of us who ARE concerned can do about it.If you attended the Womyn's Circle or the July 7th circle these issues were quite vocally debated.
So,if you didn't have a chance, go to:
to see more.
