ONE STEP AWAY
Saturday, February 3
Directed by Ed Pincus, David Neuman
(1968) “You should never give a child acid, until they’re 8, and then only if he asks for it,” earnestly advises a hippie mom enmeshed in a custody battle during the Summer of Love. “We decided to make a film about a rural commune, because that seemed to be the apotheosis of hippie ideals. What we found was a bizarre replication of bourgeois society.” – Pincus. Digital, courtesy Harvard Film Archive. Approx. 54 min.
Plus Harry’s Trip (1969, Pincus, Neuman): Commune leader Harry on his own, on acid. Digital, courtesy Harvard Film Archive. Approx. 16 min.
