Genesis/Haight-Ashbury & The Diggers

 Genesis: Featuring the voices of Philip Whalen, Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder and Peter Coyote addresses the historic poetry reading held in the 6 Gallery in San Francisco in October 1955 that ushered in the West Coast Literary Renaissance and West Coast Beat Scene. Many concur that this marked the beginning of the modern counterculture movement on the West Coast.  


  Haight-Ashbury & the Diggers: Features the voices of Lloyd Kahn, Lisa Law, Peter Coyote, Freeman House, and Gary Snyder, and presents a portrait of the hippie counterculture that prevailed in the Haight-Ashbury and the Bay Area in the 1960s, and of the Trips Festival of 1966 that many regard as the bridge between the Beat Scene and the Hippie phenomenon.
