Wondering why times are missing?

The Source Family

The subject of this mesmerizing, oddball documentary is the titular clan, a radical '70s experiment in utopian living. Members of the Source Family were a regular sight on L.A.'s Sunset Strip in the early '70s. Beautiful, sunkissed and decked out in white robes, these New Age flower children were the disciples of spiritual guru Father Yod. They were also a popular singing group (whose music is featured prominently here). The film follows the rise and fall of Yod's communal living cult, checking in with surprisingly well-adjusted former members today. 98 minutes Unrated.
