The Source Family
Not rated, 98 min. Directed by Maria Demopoulos and Jodi Wille.
This documentary about Hollywood's Source Family premiered at SXSW. A 1970s experiment in communal living, the group promoted utopian and spiritual ideals and was led by a figure called Father Yod. The hippie cult produced lots of ceremonial music but fled to Hawaii after Father Yod's multiple marriages became notorious, and the group sputtered out soon afterward.No current showings of this film.
