Tagline: 1969 ... San Francisco ... Sexual Anarchy
Plot: In 1969 San Francisco, a group of hippies were assembled by a charismatic free spirit known as Hibiscus to create an act to go on before a midnight film festival. They dressed in outlandish and skimpy costumes, danced and sang along to records, and called themselves The Cockettes. They became an overnight sensation that would last several years, even making a stop on Broadway. Filmmakers Bill Weber and David Weissman have lovingly assembled this film--composed of interviews and fascinating footage from the 1960s and 70s--which examines this groundbreaking troupe that bridged the hippie and gay/lesbian communities in order to celebrate all kinds of sexuality, and create an outrageous, memorable, and entertaining spectacle while doing it.
