"In this series of films, 'Easy Rider' reflects on the symbolic rise and fall of counter culture and its relationship with drugs in the late 60's. Following two free wheeling bikers on a rollercoaster ride across the southwest of America.

Carrying cocaine across the border from Mexico the bikers progress from marijuana to LSD as they explore life on the road. From communes to the Mardi Gras, the film journeys from the heights of freedom to the harshest darkness." - Sam Elsen (Heroic Dose curator)
