  • Using still photos, modern-day talking heads and gorgeous re-enactments, the film is a jaw-dropping piece of social history. It's also a lot of fun, with some tears along the way. Did someone say 'trip'?

  • A shadowy organization that kept the hippies dosed at the height of the '60s counterculture is brought to the light of day in this entertaining documentary.

  • [Orange Sunshine] makes for unbalanced viewing, but it also reflects and helps us better understand the time period it lovingly recreates, for better or worse.

  • Kirkley doesn't necessarily want you to feel for his subjects but instead wants you to feel like you are one of them. It is that inclusivity that makes the emotional punches that are eventually unleashed land so resoundingly.

  • Fast-paced and energetic, and a brisk and eccentric snapshot of an era.

  • Orange Sunshine is a riveting documentary with an exciting, thought-provoking, tragic and hopeful story to tell. Sit back and enjoy the vibe.
