Here's a higher-rez version.
I just got back from Hawaii, where I spent time with one of the stars of the film (also its associate producer), Isis Aquarian, and with other members of the legendary sex-drugs-and-rock-n-roll cult. I'll share more from my time with them, soon, but for now: I've seen the film, and it's really fantastic. You gotta see it. Mark your calendars, freaks.
The film is based on the book "The Source: The Untold Story of Father Yod, Ya Ho Wa 13, and The Source Family," the story of an intentional flower child community that became a radical experiment in '70's utopian living.
The LA premiere will be on Thursday, May 9th at the West Hollywood Standard Hotel, right across the street from the site of the original Source restaurant, the vegetarian eatery run by the cult and once frequented by celebs of the day.
"Cinespia and Cinefamily are producing the event," director Jodi Wille tells Boing Boing, "And we'll screen the film under the stars on the deck, serving original Source Family recipes with live Source Family music afterwards."
It's gonna be awesome. Below, the complete list of premiere dates in 20 cities around the US. Also, trailer's up on YouTube now, and vimeo.
