In 1964, Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters clambered on their freshly painted psychedelic bus to travel across America loaded on LSD. Destination: Furthur.

Already immortalised in Thomas Wolfe’s book The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, 100 hours of previously unseen home movie footage have now been edited into a new film, Magic Trip, by directors Alex Gibney and Allison Ellwood. Released stateside last Friday, here’s the trailer. Look out for Cassady, Kerouac and Ginsberg.
