Doors: 5:30PM | Film: 6PM | Discussion: 7:40PM
Join GoodCinema to explore, discuss, and dive into the controversial world of psychedelics. With an estimated 1 in 6 Americans taking psychiatric medications and an epidemic of prescription drug abuse on the rise, there isn't a better time than now to observe and reflect upon the status quo of conventional medicine in the US.
Through the film Neurons to Nirvana and a consequent discussion led by an expert panel, GoodCinema will explore the history and impacts of drug prohibition. We will also explore the possibility of Denver becoming the first US city to decriminalize the psilocybin, the naturally occurring psychedelic compound found in “magic mushrooms” with a growing body of evidence that shows promising medicinal benefits. Spearheaded by Decriminalize Denver’s efforts, thousands of Denver residents have already signed a petition to put the psilocybin decriminalization initiative on the city’s May 7, 2019 election ballots.
The film Neurons to Nirvana explores the resurgence of psychedelics as medicines while examining the evidence of their therapeutic benefits. With interviews from the world’s top researchers, writers, psychologists and pioneers in psychedelic psychotherapy, this film explores the history and medicinal potential of five powerful psychedelic substances: LSD, Psilocybin, MDMA, Ayahuasca and Cannabis.
