IndieFlix Meets Jonathan Dana of ‘Sandstone’

Sandstone is a documentary about a clothing-optional, free-love retreat in California during the sexual revolution. We were lucky enough to be able to ask some important questions of the filmmaker and well-known producer, Jonathan Dana. See what he has to say about the filming of Sandstone, living at the retreat himself, and much more. (more…)

Sex, Swingers, Sandstone: Only on IndieFlix

Sex, Swingers, Sandstone: Only on IndieFlix

Sandstone, a resort for the open-minded, encouraged a clothing-optional environment in which friends, lovers and swingers could live and love communally. The establishment was put on the map in 1969 by John and Barbara Williamson in an effort to start conversations about population growth and society’s stance on sex. It was home to many whose sexual open-mindedness were otherwise frowned upon by the mainstream. Initially released in 1975, this re-mastered director’s cut of the film that changed minds and shocked audiences is now available on IndieFlix for its digital debut. Watch it here – but don’t say we didn’t warn you…almost everyone is naked (even the director!). (more…)

We want edgy and progressive so we can be excited about new things. We want the audience-award winners, the most advanced animations, the craziest sci-fi’s, the heart-wrenching documentaries, and we want to watch them anywhere, anytime.

A Conversation with Todd Louiso

Director Todd Louiso, whose short comedy The Fifteen Minute Hamlet was just released on IndieFlix, got his start in acting. He’s played everyone from an ethically-challenged psychiatrist on Suburgatory to a sad record shop clerk in High Fidelity. His recent feature film Hello I Must Be Going (starring Melanie Lynskey, Blythe Danner, and Christopher Abbott) was the Opening Night Film at Sundance 2012. We’re pleased to have Todd as our new Featured Filmmaker. IndieFlix’s Samantha Herndon spoke with him about Shakespeare, Sundance, and the stress and magic of being on set.
