Stone Story, first feature documentary directed by Jean-André Fourestié, has its premiere on Thursday August 25th at the Cinéma du Parc, Montreal, at the RIDM+ monthly screening. The film is released on August 26th at the Cinéma du Parc.
Martin Stone chose freedom: in 1966, he took his young daughters, Deborah & Jacqueline and hit the road on a six-year adventure with America’s wildest hippy community, the Hog Farm. Five decades later, Martin and his girls live very separate lives. Martin remains true to his counterculture beliefs, living with young roommates who dig his alternative vibe in a run-down Mile-End apartment in Montreal that acts as a commune of sorts. For Martin, being a hippy wasn’t a phase; it’s a way of life. His daughters, both now living in Philadelphia, settled on less eccentric existences. Martin and they give honest accounts of their lives together and why their paths and dreams ran so far apart. STONE STORY is a film about choices and how they impact those we love.
