Plant Medicine Cinema Series

Can entheogens heal where pharmaceuticals have failed?

 

Thursday 6th June

Magic Medicine

 

Running time: 79 mins

Synopsis: Can magic mushrooms cure depression? Over 4 years, filmmaker Monty Wates was given exclusive access to the first ever medical trial to give psilocybin (the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms) to a group of volunteers suffering from clinical depression. His remarkable film follows three of the volunteers and their families, and the ambitious staff running the trial, who are hoping this controversial treatment will have the power to transform millions of lives. With deeply moving footage of the “trips” the patients go on, this intimate film is an absorbing portrait of the human cost of depression, and the inspirational people contributing to groundbreaking psychedelic research.

Doors: open at 7.30pm, screening starts at 8.00pm

 

An augmented cinema experience

A series of six film screenings exploring the use of plant medicines and entheogens in medicine as alternatives to pharmaceutical treatments.

As the cost of healthcare and pharmaceutical medicine increases, many are looking to alternatives for healing. In the face of a mental health crisis, how can entheogens assist with healing the scars that can’t be seen?

Our aim is to educate, to show the benefits and dangers inherent in using entheogens for medical treatment.
