Far Out

August 13, 2014, 12:00 am


ith episodes like “TV Comes of Age” and “World on the Brink”—which ranged from the Cold War to Nixon—CNN has embarked on a visual journey that examines, exposes and celebrates the defining moments of the 1960s.

Diving into the world of hippies and free love, this Thursday’s episode—titled “Sex, Drugs & Rock N’ Roll”— features a very familiar talking head, local activist and photographer Lisa Law, who traveled to Los Angeles earlier this summer to be interviewed about her experience documenting Woodstock and hobnobbing with the luminaries of the day.

“I was picked up in a limo, saw a makeup artist and was fed,” Law jokes about her Hollywood experience. “They sat me on a chair in a very black room with cameras and reflectors lined up in front of me and then Ramblin’ Jack Elliot’s son-in-law interviewed me for two hours about all aspects of my life and most of all Woodstock.”

Law hopes the project, set to broadcast at 7 pm Aug. 14 on Comcast channel 33, both gives her exposure for her planned Sixties Museum and also helps propel ideals of the time that still ring true today. “What I learned most in the sixties is that we are all one family here on Turtle Island,” she says. “It is up to us to take care of our mother and all sentient beings. ‘Love is all we need,’ and we should ‘give peace a chance’ and have compassion for others.”
