Looking back at a Hollywood cult from the 1970s led by a professed guru and suspected bank robber.
The Source Family was a radical experiment in '70s utopian living. Their outlandish style, popular health food restaurant, rock band and beautiful women made them the darlings of Hollywood’s Sunset Strip; but their outsider ideals and the unconventional behavior of their spiritual leader, Father Yod, caused controversy with local authorities. They fled to Hawaii, leading to their dramatic demise.
Years later, former family members surface and the rock band reforms, revealing how their time with Father Yod shaped their lives in the most unexpected ways.
The Source Family provides an intimate, insiders’ view at this incredible group of people through their own archival photos, home movies, audio recordings, and contemporary interviews with members of the family.
"A fascinating journey into the depths of the psychedelic era of the early 1970s."
