Hello!

We are Triptika Film and we are a collective of freelance filmmakers, artists, musicians and entrepreneurs with an interest in psychedelics. We belong to the psychedelic movement and we come together to create a unique and in-depth portrayal of the psychedelic renaissance.

We are producing a documentary feature about the worldwide re-emergence of the psychedelic movement and the crucial role of psychedelic substances in human culture from prehistory to modern times. With so many people suffering from conditions that could be improved by psychedelic medicines, the documentary sets out to present the argument that science and medicine would benefit from the incorporation of psychedelics and that these substances need to be researched as potential developments for clinical practice. We do not intend to show psychedelics as magical cures but present an unbiased view.

To maximize exposure the film will be available online for free and will be promoted by our associated organizations such as The Psychedelic Society, MAPS, The Beckley Foundations, as well as other institutions and associated brands with interest in psychedelics. The film will be also available to not-for-profit organizations for free screenings. We aim to spread the knowledge. For free.

Support us
So far, we have raised £5K from the crowdfunding campaign and other donations, with a further £5K coming from personal funds to pay for the production. Total estimated production budget is approximately £40-55K. We need your help to raise this money so please make a donation to support this project.

The money from donations will be allocated to production costs, crew and equipment, traveling and accommodation and post-production costs. Detailed budget sheet available upon the request.

In the last 12 months we have been researching the topic, meeting people and filming fascinating interviews around Europe. The enthusiasm for the movie has been universally shared with all that we have met so far, and the network of supporters of the project has been steadily growing. Many scientists and psychonauts from all over the world are approaching us to contribute to our story. So many people are waiting to see this film - with your help we can make it happen.

The Impact
The documentary sets out to change common misconceptions and to lift the stigma around the use of psychedelic substances. Eventually, it is hoped that enough public demand will mean the outdated drug laws are adjusted to allow psychedelics to be fully researched with the intention to bring them into therapeutic use. Nearly a fifth of adults in the UK experience anxiety or depression, according to the latest official figures. In the United States, mental illnesses are affecting tens of millions of people each year. Many people around the world suffer treatment-resistant conditions that have potential to be healed with the psychedelic substances.

We have known of the therapeutic qualities of psychedelics since the studies conducted in the 1950’s. Already in 1951, Ronald Sandison wrote that LSD gives increased access to repressed experiences, opening childhood memories and allowing patients to explore traumatic events of their past and providing associated emotional release. Today we have tools in contemporary brain science that give us an opportunity to revisit those studies of the 1950’s and 1960’s with new eyes and research the potential for curing the 21st-century epidemic of mental suffering.
