face value, this appears to be a (shockingly explicit) documentary of
the counter- culture in San Francisco, circa 1968. The film prowls its
way shamelessly through the hippie subculture of music, drugs, sex and
personal freedom. But is it real? One must respond with What kind of
question is that? Sure, without a doubt, some of the scenes
are created for the camera. Yet, the entire film was MADE
in the Sixties, within the very texture of that society, and - as such
- IT IS REAL. The film offers rare glimpses of an
era otherwise lost to time.
Rotsler was a man of many talents... artist, cartoonist, writer, photographer,
filmmaker. He was a 4-times winner of the SciFi Hugo Award, choice illustrator
for Harlan Ellison and author of the novel "Vice Squad." . He
often used pseudonyms (Shannon Carse,
Barney Boone, Tony Haze, Clay McCord, W A Chrisfield, Bill Rotzler, et
al) to camouflage his diverse interests. In the mid-Sixties, he became
editor for Adam Film World, an Adult magazine that specialized in descriptions
and photos for exotic films, both foreign and domestic. During that time,
Mr Rotsler would run classified ads in his magazine for mail-order film
loops (which he lensed) that promised to show "Naked Hippies At a
Love-In," "Demonic Sex Cults" or "Nude LSD Trips."
(etc). Eventually, many of those loop segments would be edited together
to become the framework of this motion picture. Mr Rotsler died in October
1997 after complications from radiation therapy. He was 71 years old.
