Father Yod and the Source family documentary going on general release

A documentary on Father Yod's Ya Ho Wa 13 and the Source Family will be screening from May. Premiered earlier this year, The Source Family is directed by Jodi Wille and Maria Demopoulos. Wille edited the 2007 book The Source Family: Father Yod and His Magical, Mystical Rock and Roll Commune, written by Source members Isis and Electricity Aquarian.

Yod was the head of an extended family on the West Coast. As well as starting a polygamous community, Father Yod also set up a healthy eating restaurant. Watch a trailer for the film below, and there's a list of US screenings here.
