On TV: MY PSYCHEDELIC LOVE STORY

Coming to Showtime this Sunday, November 29:
MY PSYCHEDELIC LOVE STORY

Director:
Errol Morris

World Premiere:
AFI Fest 2020

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC

About:
A profile of Joanna Harcourt-Smith and her life on the run with Timothy Leary.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Oscar-winning filmmaker Errol Morris is drawn to larger-than-life characters, but Joanna Harcourt-Smith soars above them all. She’s a Scheherazade of sexual escapades and psychedelic tripping as she describes her life with the High Priest of LSD Timothy Leary through his period as an escaped convict who was recaptured in her company. Did she betray him as Allen Ginsburg and others suspected? Harcourt-Smith doesn’t hold back in questioning her own behavior in this humorous, outlandish chapter of 1970s excess.
