The inside story on the end of SoCal's last hippie beach colony
(Austria 2005, documentary, 67 min.)

The Austrian Consulate General presents the Lower Topanga documentary Malibu Song by Natalie Lettner and Werner Hanak as the opening film of their documentary film program Made in Austria – Building Futures, Past and Present, inviting you to get to know contemporary Austrian documentary filmmakers close-up.

California, at the beginning of the 21st century: an artists’ colony with hippie roots in Malibu. The painter James Mathers sits in front of his Airstream trailer and sings "The Malibu Song:" A song for all the lazy poets, who were not meant to be productive. Then he gets up and paints... Malibu Song is a film about the end of an important chapter in the history of American culture.

The film also stars Herb Bermann, Baretta, Pablo Capra, Tool, Coliene Rentmeester, Carole Winter, Norton Wisdom, and others.

This will be the LA and US premiere, and the screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers.
