  • Description

    Unissued / unused footage - dates and locations may be unclear / unknown.

    Hippy Problem in Amsterdam, Holland / Netherlands.

    Various shots in Dam Square, the base of the National Monument littered with bodies of hippies and tourists who eat, drink and sleep there during their stay in Amsterdam. Most look stoned, some couples are snogging. Older people look on disapprovingly. Various shots of hippies sleeping rough, some have the luxury of sleeping bags, others just rough it. We see them at night sleeping under bridges, in subways and around the National Monument. Early morning shots of the streets being hosed down and the hippies quickly getting up and moving on.
