That's kind of strange-- considering that just a few years later, Brakhage
wrote the forward to Lenny Lipton's book, which was about as hippie-ish as you
could get. Not sure what he meant by hippies..?

Gerald Barrett and Wendy Brabner's book "Stan Brakhage: A guide to
references and resources" (G. K. Hall & Co., 1983) makes reference to a
letter from Brakhage published in Filmmakers Newsletter 1 (no. 2),
December 1967. Description: "A letter written to Jonas Mekas (late
September 1967) in which Brakhage delineates his reasons for withdrawing
from the Film-Makers' Cooperative and Cinematheque. As much a diatribe
against the hippie movement as it is against the Co-op, he cites the
corruption of the Co-op by the hippies as his primary motivation for
withdrawing his films."
