Triptych in Four Parts


Rental Format(s): 16mm / DVD

One of the few remaining authentically "Beat" films, made from the inside of that particular North Beach movement. Features artists Wallace Berman and family, poets Michael McClure and Phillip Lamantia, and artist John Reed, plus the growers of peyote in southern Texas. The film begins with a North Beach portrait of John Reed, proceeds to a grail-like search (and discovery) of the sacred peyote grounds, then returns to the Berman's home in SF. A spiritual drug odyssey seeking religious epiphany, a thing which many people believed in at that time.
