  • Un film de Jonas Mekas

"Report from Millbrook a été filmé en 1965 au cours d’un week-end chez Timothy Leary. En 1966, la propriété de Tim fut prise d’assaut par le shérif du coin. Le journal East Village Other fit paraître une interview du shérif à propos de ce “raid”. J’ai utilisé cette interview pour la bande-son du film."
(Jonas Mekas)

"Report from Millbrook was filmed in 1965, on a weekend visit to Tim Leary's place. It was a light summer outing. No LSD. Tim took me for a walk, though, and we talked about LSD. I told him that the chemicals that motivate and drive artists are more powerful and mysterious than LSD or any drug. On that note we turned back and ended our walk. There was nothing more to say. In 1966, Tim's place was raided by the local sheriff. The East Village Other taped an interview with the sheriff about the raid. I used the interview as the soundtrack for the film. The footage can also be seen in a different form in Diaries, Notes & Sketches."
