Synopsis

Hofmann's Potion
Hofmann's Potion looks back at the discovery and earliest applications of LSD, decades before the drug spawned a psychedelic subculture. Featuring interviews with the men and women who pioneered LSD research -- and those who promoted its recreational use -- the documentary offers a thoughtful analysis of the century's most controversial substance. ~ Carly Wray, Rovi

FLicKeR
This documentary profiles pop icon and gay activist Brion Gysin in his creation of the so-called Dream Machine -- a device designed to emit light that flickered in a pattern that would cause the brain to produce alpha waves and enter a dream state. Hoping to help subvert thought, Gysin took his machine to many famous artists and musicians, who had strong creative reactions to the Dream Machine's effects. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Hippie Masala: Forever in India
This documentary follows a group of European former hippies who relocated to India 40 years ago and never returned home. Once idealistic flower children, the now aging baby-boomers turned to the East in search of spiritual meaning, and many of them found what they were looking for, though in far different ways than they anticipated. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
