HOW I SURVIVED THE 60's
Soon to be feature film, ?How I Survived the Sixties? is a story about 17-year-old Renee Beatty who finds herself pregnant in the late sixties and realizes her life as a rock n? roll groupie must end. Renee and her best friend Sylvia McIntyre become close and supportive during the tumultuous era of free love and psychedelic drugs. As both are to be unwed mothers, abandoned by their respective boy friends, they help one another, both opting to have home births assisted by the local doctor, author and nutritionist to the stars, Dr. Henry Bieler. Renee encounters and in several cases is befriended by colorful Sixties icons like Timothy Leary, Neil Young, Animal Huxley,(Alduous Huxley?s granddaughter), Janis Joplin and popular 60?s bands such as Buffalo Springfield, Steppenwolf, Big Brother and the Holding Company and Blue Cheer.

What begins for Renee, living the life as a Hollywood hippie, searching for self-esteem in all the wrong places, evolves into a trip to Volcano National Park, Hawaii. With Sylvia?s sister Rosanna, and baby Lea in tow, she meets a wise and compassionate German Baroness and discovers the spiritual path she has been searching for.

This is a story about acceptance, forgiveness and most of all love. In flashback and flash forward, Renee and her daughter Lea, grow up together. Eventually, Renee is confronted by her daughter who not only needs to know about her father but must meet him. Hidden hurts and secrets, buried for years for fear of exposing the painful truth are revealed. This true story will inspire today?s young while reminding the Baby Boomers, that we indeed survived the Sixties. Renee?s journey culminates in a reunion with the sisters, Sylvia and Rosanna, after 38 years of virtually no contact. There is more to this reunion than meets the eye.
