Psychedelia is a 60-minute documentary about psychedelic drugs and their ability to induce mystical experiences. This engaging film chronicles the scientific research studies prior to the cultural upheaval of the 1960s, when LSD was regarded as a promising medical breakthrough, to the present-day research in psychiatry, where leading experts in the field of psychedelic research have re-introduced these compounds into a legal and growing field of study.

Featuring leading experts in the field, the film takes viewers on a journey through the origins and resurgence of psychedelic research and explores the profound effects these mind-altering compounds have had on spirituality and culture throughout the ages. With first-person accounts from patients with end-of-life anxiety, this work explores the profound and life-altering insights psychedelics induce in participants, and the potential impact psychedelics hold for humanity.
