Hey folks, I just wanted to let you know about my new documentary film, Far Out West: Inside California's Kerista Commune.
It's available now on Amazon, (or for iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu click here).
The Kerista Commune (1971-1991) is the closest thing we have to a modern day descendant of Oneida. Kerista was a group marriage, that had a charismatic leader, a form of Mutual Criticism (which they named Gestalt-o-Rama) a successful company. And the parallels are even more erie--they raised children together, and suffered an exquisitely painful breakup when the company made them wealthy.
The Keristans are fascinating, intelligent people, who have been reluctant to share their story until now. My co-director and are the first people to be given access to the more than 250 hours of home movies that the Keristans made to document their utopia. Far Out West utilizes this footage and over 50 hours of interviews with the former Keristans to tell this amazing story.
So, go ahead and rent it, and let me know what you think of it--
Or, better yet, leave a review for the film on Amazon or iTunes, which helps us get the word out.
