Contemporary music has its fare share of massive group ensembles, whether it's the extended Wu-Tang family, the robe-wearing The Polyphonic Spree, the numerous branches of the Elephant 6 Collective, or the various members of the Broken Social Scene club. But we'd wager few could touch the sprawl of The Source Family.

Contemporary music has its fare share of massive group ensembles, whether it's the extended Wu-Tang family, the robe-wearing The Polyphonic Spree, the numerous branches of the Elephant 6 Collective, or the various members of the Broken Social Scene club. But we'd wager few could touch the sprawl of The Source Family.

The '70s group combined the trappings of a celebrity, eccentric lifestyle that included a popular health food restaurant (a rarity at the time), scores of women, and popularity with the ideals of their leader, Father Yod. And oh yeah, they played music too, in the band Ya Ho Wa 13. Investigations into the family and its practices ultimately led to their demise, but their story has been captured in Jodi Wille and Maria Demopoulos' documentary "The Source Family." Featuring extensive interviews, home movies, photographs, and original music created by The Source Family themselves, the film is an eye-opening look at the phenomenon behind the group and the unique story that could only happen in 1970s California. And the exclusive poster below is pretty great way of capturing the grandeur and absurdity of the time.

Drag City Film Distribution will open the film in New York City on May 1st, and it will continue to roll out across the country from the there. You can check out the trailer, expansion dates and poster below.
