Join Gloria at the Gallery for a special screening of two films on utopian creative communities in the 1970s. The screenings will be followed by a discussion.

A Beautiful Way to Live (1971, 25 minutes)
In 1971, Anglia Television visits two communes that are prospering in Norfolk. The first, is a gathering of artists who live at a former school – the Crow Hall Commune in Downham Market. The second commune visited at The Old Rectory Farm, Scoulton, near Watton where artist and novelist Cressida Lindsay lives with her five children and fellow artists.

Tribe of the Sun (1972, 24 minutes)
An extremely rare film of the alternative community that settled on the uninhabited Dorinish island off Co Mayo, owned by John Lennon and given custodianship to Sid Rawle, ‘King of the Hippies’, in 1970.
