One minute of chaos purporting to represent the next feature documentary from Matt Hulse.
WARNING: contains widely-used, plainly-spoken short Anglo Saxon words and phrases.
THE HIPPIES were Britain's youngest punk band. They formed in ’79. The handful of songs on their only cassette A SOUND FOR THE FUTURE explore fatal animal disease, assassination, dystopic visions and the poor anger-management of a Chinese mathematics teacher.
Mixing documentary, fiction and animation, the film will investigate a time of personal and social upheaval, for the band and their family – set against the wider, unsettled social landscape of post-punk UK ’79.
