About The Source Family:
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. THE SOURCE FAMILY provides an intimate insiders’ view of this incredible group of people through their own archival photos, home movies, audio recordings and contemporary interviews. Serving as a highly personal guide to the counterculture movement of the early 70s, the film is inspired by the cultclassic book The Source: The Story of Father Yod, Ya Ho Wa 13, and The Source Family (Process Media) written by Isis Aquarian and Electricity Aquarian and edited by director Jodi Wille.
About The Cinefamily:
The Cinefamily is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of movie lovers devoted to finding and presenting interesting and unusual programs of exceptional, distinctive, weird and wonderful films. The Cinefamily’s mission is to foster a spirit of community and a sense of discovery, while reinvigorating the moviegoing experience. Like campfires, sporting events and church services, we believe that movies work best as social experiences. They are more meaningful, funnier and scarier when shared with others. The Cinefamily was founded in 2007 by brothers Dan and Sammy Harkham and Hadrian Belove, founder of Cinefile Video.
