TIFF.17 - What's Up Doc?

Soviet Hippies TIFF.17

Thrilled by rock music, inspired by the cult of peace and love, the young long-haired drop-outs craved for freedom in the Soviet Union of the 1970s. They created their own world despite the strict regime. Years later, a group of eccentric hippies from Estonia takes a road trip to Moscow where people still gather annually on the 1st of June for celebrations related to the tragic event of 1971, when thousands of hippies were arrested by the KGB.
