Chappaqua, an independent film directed by Conrad Rooker. It was originally released in 1966. The film featured Jean-Louis Barrault, Conrad Rooker, William S. Burroughs, Alan Ginsberg, Ravi Shankar, Swami Satchidananda, Moondog, and Ornette Coleman. While most credit the Beatles' George Harrison for introducing Ravi Shankar to the west, this film actually predates their recordings while also bringing the first Swami onto American soil. Chappaqua provided an early look at what would ultimately become a foresight to a "trippy" generation. This film was completely funded by Rooker with no outside investors.
