Nearly Normal Nimbin, a film doco trilogy, will be shown in its entirety at The Nimbin Bush Theatre, on the BIG screen where it belongs! A glorious history of our beloved town and community featuring many familiar faces and a deeper insight into how we came to be where we are now.

Jeni Kendall and Paul Tait were previously best known for the environmental awareness documentary  Blowpipes and Bulldozers, which ended up winning many international awards and being shown for years at grassroots events all over the world. In 19993 they turned their attention and skills to documenting the life and lives of Nimbin. Presented as a trilogy this well thought out journey explores Nimbin's alternative history from the perspective of 2 great supporters of the community.

Part 1:    Peace, Love and Burnt Rice. ( The Aquarius Settlers 1975-79)

Part 2:   Sects, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll. ( Present day at time of filming - 1993-95)

Part 3:   Sensitive New Age Guise. ( Families and relationships.)

Twenty two years after the 1973 Aquarius Festival which heralded the beginnings of Nimbin's colourful counter-culture, this video examines the town's lifestyles and the polarities which have arisen. In a wider context it traces social and cultural change to Australian society through the small community's eyes.

Paul and Jeni were nominated for an AFI for Nearly Normal Nimbin , which screened on SBS in the mid-90's.

This is a great chance to catch this iconic documentary on the big screen with big sound and to delve deeply into the history of the magical town and culture that is Nimbin.

Cafe open for dinner. BYO.
