NEW YORK, NY - MAY 21, 2014 - Alive Mind Cinema is pleased to announce the DVD release of Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton, a documentary by Eric Slade, Stephen Silha, and Dawn Logsdon that tells the remarkable story of pioneering experimental filmmaker and poet James Broughton, whose art came to be seen as a driving force in sexual liberation.
Big Joy won the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 2013 Florida Film Festival, and the Reel NW Award at the Seattle International Film Festival. It was an Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival, South by Southwest, Frameline 37 Film Festival, and the Hong Kong International Film Festival.

Years before the Beats arrived in San Francisco, the city exploded with artistic expressions - painting, theatre, film, and poetry. At its center was the groundbreaking filmmaker and poet James Broughton. BIG JOY explores Broughton's passionate embrace of a life of pansexual transcendence and a fiercely independent mantra: "follow your own weird".
His remarkable story pans the post-war San Francisco Renaissance, his influence on the Beat generation, escape to Europe during the McCarthy years, a lifetime of acclaim for his joyous experimental films and poetry celebrating the human body, finding his soulmate at age 61, and finally, his ascendance as a revered bard of sexual liberation.
