Kickstarter set up for Temple Ov Psychick Youth documentary

Sacred Bones and Dais to produce a documentary about the occultist group founded by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge in 1981

A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to get the ball rolling on a new documentary about Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth, a fellowship founded in 1981 by Psychic TV’s Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. Directed by Jacqueline Castel, A Message From The Temple will be told by those who were involved. Drawing on new interviews and the personal archives of its members, it sets out to document Thee Temple from its inception to its demise. It also plans to examine the legacy that this chaos magic clan left behind.

The project needs cash for travel and production costs, as well as the preservation and restoration of Thee Temple’s archive, licensing rights, and more. Depending on your pledge, you might receive a Psychic cross earing, a message from Thee Temple, a signed copy of the Psychic bible, or even a haircut from Genesis Breyer P-Orridge's original barbers. The film makers are also asking for those who came into contact with the group to share their stories. More information on that can be found on the Kickstarter page.

The project is being overseen by Sacred Bones and Dais, the latter of which recently made the entire Psychic TV back catalogue available digitally.
