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. 

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. 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.

“I loved seeing Going Furthur! It was a beautiful testament to a worldwide movement that started in the 60’s, and was part of the magic bus that an entire generation got on, and then thought about. Then 50 years later to have it rekindled by Zane and all of the crew that went across the country… 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. I thought it was a testimony to the creative spirit that is still awake across this land, an awakening in the younger generation, and it was very inspiring!“

"A fitting sequel to Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test"

- River Donaghey

"This movie is really funny — and not in a you-had-to-be-there way"

"This film crew didn’t just show up for a couple days and collect some footage. They lived on the bus for three months, start to finish, on the 50th anniversary tour, celebrating the historic Neal Cassady-driven trip across the country in 1964."

"This is a movie that people love"

“Going Furthur packed the house at CoSM and it is 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!”

"Very nice work"

"Very nice work, makes me nostalgic for the 60s, but also encouraged that the spirit of ‘further’ is still very much part of our current cultural meme."


“I enjoyed how the film bridged 50 years of history of this Counterculture with where we are now"

“I enjoyed how the film bridged 50 years of history of this Counterculture with where we are now. It follows Furthur the most famous psychedelic bus on a wild ride from coast to coast but it is so much more than just another road film. It is full of truly spectacular characters, inspiring conversation, celebration, and hope. How did we get here? Where do all these freaky folks come from? Look at what these beautiful people are creating, a colorful world of art, adventure, music and laughter. I believe it will inspire future generations to jump on the road and feel free to freak freely. Buy the ticket take the ride!”

Through never-before-seen archive footage, as well as over 300 hours of film shot over the course of three months, Going Furthur explores 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 is 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.
