Ben Van Meter – S.F. Trips Festival, An Opening {1966}

“In February of 1966 the San Francisco Trips Festival was held at
Longshoreman’s Hall in San Francisco. This was the seminal event of the
60’s rock scene. A lot of different folks did their thing including
Kesey and the Merry Pranksters. I filmed it in my then inmitable style.
I have always described it as “A documentary of the event from the pov
of a goldfish in the koolaid bowl.”  It is written about in all of the
scholarly books about experimental film and has been hailed by one
academic as, “The most psychedelic film ever made.” Whatever. Enjoy.”
