Magic Medicine screening + panel discussion

We're proud to present the Bristol premiere screenings of new documentary Magic Medicine. It's a beautifully crafted film which follows the researchers and participants on the Imperial College medical trials, pioneering the use of psilocybin for the treatment of depression. The film holds no punches, painting a vivid picture of the difficulty of living with depression, and the promise of a treatment where all other options fail.

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.

Quote of the day

What we see as death, empty space, or nothingness is only the trough between the crests of this endlessly waving ocean. It is all part of the illusion that there should seem to be something to be gained in the future, and that there is an urgent necessity to go on and on until we get it. Yet just as there is no time but the present, and no one except the all-and-everything, there is never anything to be gained—though the zest of the game is to pretend that there is.
