HAVE A GOOD TRIP: ADVENTURES IN PSYCHEDELICS

Director:
Donick Cary

World Premiere:
SXSW 2020 (cancelled)

About:
Celebrities and other notables share their often funny experiences with mind-altering substances.

Despite promising therapeutic studies conducted in the 1950s and early 1960s involving psychedelic drugs like LSD, they were still classified by the federal government as illegal substances. That status, of course, hasn’t stopped people from taking them, or from talking about their trips. Assembling stories from a wide range of famous folks from Sting and Sarah Silverman to Deepak Chopra and Carrie Fisher, filmmaker Donick Cary takes a comedic look at the history, science, and potential of psychedelics, as well as how they have been (mis)represented in popular culture. The result is a light-hearted survey of often very funny celebrity storytelling, illustrated through fun animated sequences, re-enactments, and an extended AFTERSCHOOL SPECIAL parody.
