The Source Family

98 min minutes

The Source family was an early 1970s Southern California commune that formed around Jim Baker, later known as Father Yod. He started a vegetarian organic restaurant on Sunset Boulevard called the Source that morphed into a community of attractive young people who saw Baker as their father. The story is told through interviews with former members and old films, photos, and recordings—making a dynamic narrative. As the movie notes, they transformed sex, drugs, and rock and roll into a genuine religious formation.
