Watch Chappaqua, a 1966 cult film that features a pantheon of 60s luminaries

The film Chappaqua (1966) was written and directed by Conrad Rooks. This cult movie is based on Rooks' personal story of struggling with drug addiction. I was initially intrigued to watch this film when I found out that Chappaqua features appearances from many acclaimed figures whom I look up to, such as William S. Burroughs, Swami Satchidananda, Allen Ginsberg, Moondog, Ornette Coleman, The Fugs, and Ravi Shankar.

Shankar composed the score for the film, as well.

From YouTube: "The film briefly depicts Chappaqua, New York, a hamlet in Westchester County, in a few minutes of wintry panoramas. In the film, the hamlet is an overt symbol of drug-free suburban childhood innocence. It also serves as one of the film's many nods to Native American culture. The word "chappaqua" derives from the Wappinger (a nation of the Algonquian peoples) word for 'laurel swamp.'"
