Shot in the summer of 1969 1969, such a colourful, eventful, exciting year. Jimi Hendrix played at Woodstock; John and Yoko were in a bed in Amsterdam for Peace; Everyone knew the lyrics from Hair, protesters were demonstrating against the Vietnam war; Women were burning their bras and demanding equal pay while everywhere eyes were turned skyward as man attempted the first daring moon landing.  And that same summer of ’69,  somewhere deep in a Sussex woodland clearing, the Page family were going about their business, leaving us with a glimpse into their unusual daily life, their thoughts and ideas, seemingly so very different from our own, eccentric, bizarre even, but yet half a century on this family continues to hold a curiously hypnotizing attraction.  Why? Don’t miss out on an important discussion, highlighting Mr Page’s concerns about the world.  Join director Philip Trevelyan and activist Shaun Chamberlin as they look back to Mr Page’s warning and look forward to our uncertain future.
