The Source Family

Directed By Maria Demopoulos & Jodi Wille, 2013, 105 minutes, unrated

Filmmakers Jodi Wille and Maria Demopoulos probe the inner-workings of a Utopian community that thrived in California during the early 1970s in this fascinating documentary film about a figure you’ve likely never heard of but won’t be able to stop thinking about.

Under the guidance of spiritual guru Father Yod, the secretive Source Family operated a popular vegetarian restaurant on the Sunset Strip, and started a psychedelic rock band while living in a sprawling estate in the Hollywood Hills. With a steady influx of celebrities helping the restaurant to thrive, Father Yod’s family began to expand, and gain greater influence. But when Father Yod clashed with the local authorities, it was time to move on. Selling the restaurant and moving the commune to Hawaii seemed like the perfect solution, but it was this decision that would lead to tragedy just one year later.
