Fifty years after the iconic first Trip, Ken Kesey’s son Zane took the Furthur Bus – and his father’s legacy- back on the road, for its longest running tour in history. Armed with a new band of Merry Pranksters, the Furthur bus traveled over 15,000 miles in 75 days, riding into music festivals, community events, tribal gatherings and national landmarks, reestablishing itself as a symbol of radical self-expression and cultural revolution all across the country.
Through archive footage as well as over 400 hours of film, we explore the roots of a culture birthed in the early sixties, and how the mission of those first few idealists have influenced a new generation. This is an on-the-ground account of how Ken Kesey, the pranksters and the acid tests helped to generate a non-conformist society of free thinkers, artists and altruists who are now pushing the evolutionary envelope of human potential.
Rooms are available for rent in Grey House, CoSM’s fully renovated Visionary Victorian guest house.
