This week on Comes a Time Oteil and Mike talk with documentary filmmaker Lindsay Kent, who details the process of telling the story of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters through her feature-length documentary film Going Furthur, which was released in 2016. In this conversation you’ll hear Lindsay, Mike, and Oteil talk about Kesey and the Pranksters and their incredibly anomalous antics, Lindsay’s introduction to the universe of the Grateful Dead, the process of understanding her purpose as a filmmaker, and much more. You’ll also hear an interesting discussion on how human beings make collective artistic progress over time, and at the end of the episode you’ll hear an interview from the archives between Mike and Ken Kesey!
Lindsay Kent is a Bay area-based documentary filmmaker with a passion for social impact-focused content. She uses her storytelling abilities to bring meaningful productions to the public at large, and debuted her talents when she released Going Furthur in 2016. The feature-length documentary tells the story of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters, digging deep into the roots of the counterculture movement. Conductrix is her second feature-length documentary film as producer and director, and in 2019 she curated the first ever Women’s Visionary Film Symposium, which took place at a New York retreat center.
