Don’t miss the Q&A…
After you register for this screening, be sure to register for the follow-up event, Members-Only Q&A: My Psychedelic Love Story, featuring a conversation with director/producer Errol Morris. (Wednesday, January 20 – 3:00pm PT)
Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch My Psychedelic Love Story in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media.
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Errol Morris (The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara) comes a fascinating look at counterculture icon Timothy Leary as seen through the eyes of the European heiress who believed he was her soulmate. Joanna Harcourt-Smith met Leary in the fall of 1972 when he was a fugitive from justice, and the pair fell quickly, madly in love — but was their romance a matter of destiny? Or was she a CIA “sex spy” who manipulated him into becoming a government informant? Through a series of candid interviews, Morris and Harcourt-Smith re-examine this chaotic period and explore the mystery of Leary’s saga: his exile, reimprisonment and subsequent cooperation with the authorities. Inspired by Harcourt-Smith’s memoir Tripping the Bardo with Timothy Leary: My Psychedelic Love Story, My Psychedelic Love Story offers a singular snapshot of the early 1970s’ cultural landscape — and its profound impact on the trajectory of one woman’s life.
