GOING FURTHER

2021 (USA) 93 minutes

Directed by: Colby Rex O’Neill, Matt Pidutti, and Lindsay Kent

Going Further 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 freethinkers, 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 the Further Bus 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 Further bus traveled over 15,000 miles in 75 days, riding into music festivals, community events, tribal gatherings, and national landmarks, reestablishing itself as a symbol of radical self-expression and cultural revolution all across the country. Through archival footage as well as over 400 hours of film, we explore the roots of a culture born in the early sixties, and how the mission of those first few idealists have influenced a new generation.
