Magic Trip - Ken Kesey's Search for a Kool Place DVD
Directed by Alison Ellwood
Stanley Tucci narrates this documentary account of counter-culture pioneer Ken Kesey's 1960s trip across America in a psychedelically painted school bus.
In 1964 Kesey, the author of 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' and an advocate for the use of LSD since the time he volunteered to take part in a project studying the effects of the psychoactive drug, decided to travel across country to New York to fulfil a business engagement.
Buying an old school bus they named 'Further', Kesey and his group of friends, known as 'The Merry Pranksters', embarked on a cross-country acid-fuelled road trip in an attempt to create art out of everyday life.
