THE EDGE OF PARADISE

A Film Screening and Art Reception

 

Taylor Camp was the ultimate hippie fantasy: a pot-friendly, clothing optional treehouse village at the end of the road on Kaua‘i's North Shore. 

 

Taylor Camp started in 1969 as a group of hippies and surfers who built an off-the-grid treehouse community on pristine oceanfront land owned by Howard Taylor (brother of actress Elizabeth). At its peak, the clothing-optional, pot-friendly village had a self-governing population of 120, many of whom had fled the madness of Vietnam and political unrest on the continental U.S. and believed they could create a paradise based on alternative human and ecological ideals. As often happens with utopian efforts, Taylor Camp ended in flames in 1977 when residents were evicted by local authorities.

 

The Kaua‘i that the campers experienced was an anomaly: a brief period of low population and natural abundance as the plantation economy wound down, but before the onset of the real estate bonanza, coupled with the financial, ecological and cultural assault of mass tourism.

 

5 pm Free Art Reception.  7 pm Ticketed Film Screening.
