"The film focuses on the aftermath of the Hippie migration to Asia, specifically documenting the lives of six Hippies who chose to remain in India: Cesare from Italy, Erica and Gillian from South Africa, Hanspeter from Switzerland, Meera from Belgium and Robert from the Netherlands. No longer in their 20s, they are leading the lives of a traditional yogi and a female meditator in retreat, a painter with a local wife and children, designers of beach clothing in Goa, and a farmer who hunts and cares for his cows in the Himalayas."
"In the 1960s and 1970s thousands of hippies journeyed East to India in the search of either enlightenment, free drugs or a 'pure' life. Most moved back to their home countries after a few months or years while some stayed for good. Cesare, an Italian expatriate, is still there searching and striving for spiritual liberation through back-breaking yoga. Hanspeter, a man originally from Switzerland, runs a small farm in the Himalayas. Erica and Gillian, South African twins, sew hippie handicrafts by day and party tirelessly at night. HIPPIE MASALA is a fascinating chronicle about aging flower children who, after fleeing Western civilization, found a new way of life in India."
