Mudflats Living

Top of page

Life from the inside of an artistic community, a 'counter-culture' group living as squatters in the mudflats area in North Vancouver. Having rejected drugs, they now practise a philosophy of love for the universe as expressed in the poem Desiderata, quoted in the film. In their view the values of 'straight society' are represented by the mayor of North Vancouver, who favours clearing the area for the building of a shopping centre.
