Magic Trip

2011 R

Using found footage captured by author Ken Kesey (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest), filmmakers Alison Ellwood and Alex Gibney re-create the writer's infamous 1964 road trip to New York's Tomorrowland. And what a long, strange trip it was. While riding high on LSD in a brightly painted school bus, Kesey's inner circle of Merry Pranksters explore the limits of the mind and the possibilities of drug-addled imagination.
