Can magic mushrooms cure depression?

Over 2 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.


Exclusive Q&A with Professor David Nutt - Edmund J Safra Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology, Imperial College London

The screening will be followed by a talk by Professor David Nutt, about his research using psychedelics to treat depression. He’ll also update on some of the exciting new developments that have happened since that film, including new research with psychedelics for mental health, and also other aspects of life such as creativity.
