WATCH THE TRAILER

Going Furthur is a feature length documentary film that shows an on-the-ground account of how Ken Kesey, the Merry 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. 

50 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 it’s logest 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.

“A fitting sequel to the electric kool-aid acid test."

  • RIVER DONAGHEY (VICE MAGAZINE)
“Going Furthur packed the house at CoSM & it was our first Visionary Salon sellout since 'DMT: the Spirit Molecule' This is a movie that people love and is filled with joy, collaboration and creativity. Very colorful, well done!”
  • ALLYSON GREY (VISIONARY ARTIST – COSM)
"It’s a total road film. it’s a love story, but the love story is the love of our community. I thought it was beautiful, a testimony to the creative spirit that is still awake across this land. an awakening in the younger generation, very inspiring!“
  • ALEX GREY (VISIONARY ARTIST – COSM)
