A Celebration of Life for Bob Stone begins at 5:30 pm in the Yokouchi Pavilion Courtyard
Director Bob Stone was able to bring the original film ‘Taylor Camp’ to its complete evolution prior to his passing in late 2018, and “The Edge of Paradise” is the reimagined and full-spirited result of those efforts.
The original film covered the story of a magical place born in 1969, when Howard Taylor, brother of actress Elizabeth and living on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Kauai, bails out a rag-tag band of young Mainlanders jailed for vagrancy and invites them to live on his oceanfront land.
Soon, waves of hippies, surfers, and Vietnam vets find their way to this clothing-optional, pot-friendly, tree house village at the end of the road on Kauai’s North Shore—the ultimate hippie fantasy... until eight years later when the locals decide it’s time for them to go.
Released in 2011, Bob Stone/director and John Wehrheim/producer knew the film had a great subject, unforgettable characters, and timeless ‘60s and ‘70s material, but felt it missed some of the community’s richness and spirit, a spirit that lived on in so many of the Taylor Campers.
For seven years after the completion of the original film, the campers sent in a steady stream of new material and ideas. So, they remade the movie into HD with new film clips, photos, interviews and music, adding segments dedicated to surfing, founding the food coop, the first baby born, and the resident doctor, a Vietnam flight surgeon.
Some of the darker elements of camp life have also been added, like the story of the guy who got strung out on cocaine, left Taylor Camp, and took off for South America with five hundred dollars and his three-year-old daughter who was conceived on LSD. Forty years later, his interview side-by-side with his daughter becomes part of this rich story.
Please join us as we take this time to celebrate Bob Stone’s impactful life and magical work.
