Description by OLDIES.com:

This controversial and startling mix of music and visuals is a semi-autobiographical psycho-drama following one addict's journey from sickness to health, anguish to well-being. When Russel Harwick, a young, well-to-do alcoholic and junkie, heads to Switzerland for the "Swiss Sleeping Cure," he enters a psychedelic world set not in reality, but in the explosive, delusional landscapes of the mind. Tormented during withdrawal by a disorienting mingling of recollection and fantasy, Harwick experiences a life-affirming epiphany, which leads him from his nightmare.

Featuring one of the most diverse casts in movie history, The Chappaqua filmscape is populated with counter-cultural icons Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs (Author of Naked Lunch), French actor Jean Louis Barrault, and jazz musician Ornette Coleman. Destined to be a cult-classic, Chappaqua takes us to the edge and back in what Playboy called "a confusing, frightening, and weirdly beautiful movie."

Product Description:

This controversial yet critically lauded film emanated from the extremely productive underground arts scene of the 1960's. A hypnotic, psychedelic style informs the semi-autobiographical story of a cocaine addict who experiences a reaffirmation of life while visiting Switzerland. A surreal alternation between mindscapes and reality, CHAPPAQUA features Beat icons Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs, as well as free jazz guru Ornette Coleman.
