Over time hippie-inspired Rainbow Gatherings in the forest have become magnets for a new counterculture: homeless teens and young adults. Alice Stein's new film Dirty Kids explores the culture clash and commonality of the two free-spirited groups.
Many of these young people are running from bad home situations, warrants, or other parts of their lives they want to escape. Rainbow Gatherings appeal to both groups, because both young and old attendees reject consumerism, corporate capitalism and mainstream culture and values. Where they differ gets explored in depth in the film, largely from the younger point of view.
