For the 2006 National Rainbow Gathering in Colorado, I (ed... not me, John
Hartman) captured footage with
five super 8 cartridges, which equalled a nine minute film. I should have
taken more film on that trip! Not yet satisfied with the outcome, I returned
to the 2008 National Rainbow Gathering in Wyoming with six more cartridges.
Instead of showing everything that I filmed, I consolidated the eleven reels
of material into a short film of about eleven minutes running time. Two of the
cartridges were the new "Vision 2" super 8 film...a much better film stock.
The film that appears really good (without a black border) is that footage.
As well, I attempted to incorporate two dolls into the film: "Groovy Guy" (a
G.I. Joe doll) and "Gothic Girl" (a Barbie type doll). I have those dolls in
other films of mine and thought the gathering would be a nice place to take

The Effects Of Rainbow On Local CommunitiesThis DVD is a gift from a few people who have attended Rainbow Gatherings. It is about 13 minutes long and includes interviews with people who have lived in communities near where the annual Rainbow gatherings have occurred.
The individuals who are on this tape represent only themselves and should not be considered leaders or spokespersons.
It is hoped that you will have positive experiences with the people who will be visiting your town. Peace.
