Living Color Living Sound / 55 Min. USA 2011 / English
Living Color Living Sound is an experimental documentary on the American Rainbow Family's 40th Annual National Rainbow Gathering, shot in Washington State's Gifford Pinchot National Forest in July 2011.
The filmmaker, StarLynn Jacobs, has created a sensorial introduction to this complex and diverse group that she has over a decade of experience with. The Rainbow Family functions without official leaders or doctrines, uses consensus, and is open to all. Living Color Living Sound is an auto-ethnographic glimpse of a thriving thread of American life that, on many levels, attempts to operate outside the hyper-capitalistic world of the "dominant culture."
