The Hippies: Punk Rocked My Cradle

Hybrid Documentary – In Production
Writer/Director – Matt Hulse

THE HIPPIES were a bizarre English punk band formed in ’79 by the Hulse children, Toby (12), Matt (10) and Polly (7). Their cassette album A Sound for the Future featured songs about disease, assassination and The Antarctic. The band performed ticketed live shows for their mother’s kindly and chaotic group of friends, part of the ramshackle ‘Cambridge fringe element’: the homeless, drunks, animal rights activists, junkies, cross-dressers and a pair of gay Franciscan Friars. Using archive, music of the period and poetic re-imagining’s of key moments. The Hippies will be an energetic, jarring, comical, musical ride through a part-remembered, kaleidoscopically fractured family history.
