Still image from the film The Source
The Source is a comprehensive documentary on the Beats and the Beat Generation, beginning with the meeting of Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs in the forties, and spanning international bohemian life of the fifties, the San Francisco and West Coast renaissance, the artistic, political, and spiritual movements of the sixties and seventies, and the important and inevitable influence of the Beats today. Three years in the making, the film is the most comprehensive portrait to date of the counterculture of the past 50 years and its enormous effect on art, politics, gay and women’s rights, minority rights, increased awareness, popular culture, and everyday life.
