From 1966 - 1969 the Diggers were a loose network of activists and others who used guerrilla street theater, direct action and a good sense of humor to explore social alternatives. Their motto was "Everything is Free; Do Your Own Thing!" In the late 1990s, Celine Deransart and Alice Gaillard trekked to California and spent several weeks interviewing participants of the Digger experience.  Their film, Les Diggers de San Francisco, includes footage from the Digger film Nowsreal, archival still photos and interviews. Interviewees include Peter Berg, Nina Blasenheim, Peter Coyote, Judy Goldhaft, Chuck Gould, Freeman House, Lenore Kandel, Jane Lapiner and David Simpson. Interviews are in English with some additional information in French.
