Following the film, Indiewire Editor-at-Large Anne Thompson leads a conversation with filmmaker Errol Morris.
A psychedelic head trip crossed with a possible CIA conspiracy and wrapped in a fascinating love story, Errol Morris’ latest documentary takes us on an Alice in Wonderland adventure deep inside a largely forgotten episode of the early ‘70s. Told through the lens of Timothy Leary’s lover, the Swiss-born, Paris-raised free spirit Joanna Harcourt-Smith, MY PSYCHEDELIC LOVE STORY examines the twists and turns that led Leary, the High Priest of LSD, to seemingly sell out the millions he urged to “turn on, tune in and drop out” and become a narc in 1974. At the heart of the story is the woman Leary described as his “perfect love.” Was she a government pawn, a Mata Hari, or simply a beautiful, young, intelligent woman on the trip of a lifetime?
Errol Morris’s films have won many awards, including the Academy Award® for THE FOG OF WAR, the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival for A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME, the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival for STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE and the Edgar from the Mystery Writers of America for THE THIN BLUE LINE.
