What if we had a microscope for observing the mind, a telescope for seeing the soul? A New Understanding: The Science of Psilocybin follows research meant to produce that tool and provide effective new treatments for depression and the existential distress of the terminally ill.
Luc Conte & Janine Sagert
A vivid and memorable piece of filmmaking. A story of salvation told through the eyes of two vets who came back from Afghanistan wracked by guilt about the violence and death they participated in.
We follow as they find a way to save their souls using plant medicines.
Shane Mauss, Comedian and Filmmaker
Shane Mauss is about the furthest you can get from a stereotypical psychonaut. This is a funny and searching journey through the world of psychedelics. Another marvelous piece of filmmaking. It is a soon-to- be-released feature that utilizes Shane’s acute insight as he seeks to understand himself.
Javier Prato, Director
This is a vivid introduction to the broad panorama of plant medicines. It’s filled with vivid interviews with many of the luminaries in the field, as well as an up-close look at indigenous shamans and at how the medicines are used as part of traditional life. This film introduces us to a dazzling multiplicity of people, places and experiences.
Ben Stewart, Director
An extended visual essay about the importance of how we process and absorb psychedelic experience -- and find and apply its meaning to our lives. The video touches on the spiritual, the cultural and the psychological.
