The Movie — Taylor Camp

In 1969, a small group of young men, women and chil­dren – refugees from cam­pus riots, Viet­nam War protests and police bru­tal­i­ty – fled from the main­land to the island of Kauai. Soon they were arrest­ed and sen­tenced to 90 days’ hard labor for hav­ing no mon­ey and no home. Island res­i­dent Howard Tay­lor, broth­er of actress Eliz­a­beth, bailed them out of jail and invit­ed them to camp on his vacant ocean­front prop­er­ty.  Soon waves of hip­pies, surfers and trou­bled Viet­nam vets found their way to this cloth­ing-option­al, pot-friend­ly tree house vil­lage at the end of the road on the island’s North Shore. Tay­lor Camp reveals a com­mu­ni­ty that cre­at­ed order with­out rules, reject­ing mate­ri­al­ism for the heal­ing pow­er of nature. We come to under­stand the sig­nif­i­cance Tay­lor Camp’s eight-year exis­tence through inter­views made 30 years lat­er after the film­mak­ers tracked down the campers, their neigh­bors and the gov­ern­ment offi­cials who final­ly got rid of them.

Through the late 60s and 70s, Tay­lor Camp was the epit­o­me of the hip­pie dream, espous­ing free love, nud­ism, sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Kauai pre­sent­ed an idyl­lic trop­i­cal set­ting for a com­mu­ni­ty that looked at the cur­rent val­ue sys­tem of main­stream Amer­i­can cul­ture with noth­ing but dis­dain.  In 1977, the gov­ern­ment con­demned the vil­lage to make way for Ha’ena State Park. With­in a few years the jun­gle reclaimed Tay­lor Camp, leav­ing lit­tle but mem­o­ries of “the best days of our lives.”

If you lived through the 60s and 70s (remem­ber­ing it or not), were a hip­pie, still are a hip­pie, surfer, Hawai­ian or oth­er local, Viet­nam Vet, hat­ed hip­pies, pot-smok­er, veg­e­tar­i­an, nud­ist, or alter­na­tive lifestyl­ist, there is some­thing for you in Tay­lor Camp.  No mat­ter what you think of the hip­pie ethos, Tay­lor Camp is a film that pro­vides fas­ci­nat­ing insights into one of the most impor­tant cul­tur­al rev­o­lu­tions in mod­ern times.

Tay­lor Camp is the ulti­mate hip­pie fan­ta­sy retold three decades lat­er in a mov­ing and mag­i­cal doc­u­men­tary. Don’t miss it!”
