Film Screening - Going Furthur

Fifty years after the iconic first Trip, Ken Kesey’s son Zane took Furthur-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.

Denman Island local filmmaker Colby Rex O’Neill will share his latest feature documentary with an appreciative Denman audience. Arrive early enough to enjoy his recent short about the Burning Man festival. Stay after the movie for a musical performance by Frase, an artist who is featured heavily on the Going Furthur soundtrack.

Get “On the Bus” as we experience first-hand the seeds sown by Ken and his crew, and how they’ve inspired a new generation. Through never-before-seen archive footage, as well as over 300 hours of film shot over the course of three months (edited down to feature film length), Going Furthur will explore the roots of a culture birthed in the early sixties, and how the mission of those first few idealists have influenced the counterculture of today. Inspired by Furthur as a beacon of true American freedom, this will be an on-the-ground account of the massive potential we have in this generation to be the change we wish to see in the world.
