Event description
The Psychedelic Renaissance is upon us - join 3 powerhouse women directors & producers as we show & discuss their latest documentary.

About this event

The Psychedelic Renaissance is upon us - join 3 powerhouse women directors & producers: Anya Oleksiuk, Haya Heji and Mercedes Grant to discuss their feature documentary with CPA Board member Dr. Pamela Kryskow.

The documentary is pre-release and an exclusive preview of the documentary will be shown DURING the event!

About the film project:

The Psychedelic Renaissance, is a feature documentary about the worldwide re-emergence of the psychedelic movement and the crucial role of psychedelic substances in human culture, from prehistoric to modern times. The film provides free and accessible education about psychedelic substances and harm reduction while serving as a campaign platform for drug policy reform.

The documentary features a broad spectrum of people involved in the ongoing renaissance in the UK and beyond - scientists, doctors, researchers, authors, facilitators, and users - to encourage a better understanding of these controversial substances. Some of these key players in the field include **Amanda Fielding, Dr Rosalind Watts, Camille Barton, Michelle Baker Jones, Darren Springer, Dr Christopher Timmermann, Natalie Ginsberg and Sara Reid**, as they lead the psychedelic renaissance forward.

Our documentary captures the psychedelic renaissance from its early stages, to the exponential growth in the field we see today. We document the journeys of grassroots organizations such as **Decriminalize Denver** (now **SPORE**) and various psychedelic societies globally, as they planted the seeds for change at the beginning of last decade and follow the progress of revival of psychedelic research in small medical departments to the establishment of psychedelic research centres and institutes which continue to propel the ongoing revolution in mental health care and psychiatry.

As the psychedelic field begins to attract more media attention and investors begin to take interest, we believe it is important to have nuanced conversations around the sensationalization of psychedelics and the perils of unregulated psychedelic capitalism. As such, we have presented balanced, non-bias dialogue from well-informed figures, to portray the potential harms, as well the positives, that could emerge from psychedelic mainstreaming.
