Trailer: Flowers and Sickles: The Psychedelic Underground of the Soviet Hippies

The hippie movement which turned hundreds of thousands of youth towards the cult of peace & love in the West wasn’t absent on the other side of the Iron Curtain. The creative documentary takes us on a psychedelic road trip through time, exploring the traces of the hippie legacy in the Soviet Union – the dream which allowed the youth to feel free even under the repressive Soviet rule. The conflicting personal and social ‘truths’, the tension between the psychedelic and the ‘rationale’ are vividly revealed.
