A special screening of the critically acclaimed documentary Magic Medicine exploring how mushrooms may provide a solution in treating depression.

Certificate 15

Over four years, filmmaker Monty Wates was given exclusive access to Imperial College Centre for Psychedelic Research to capture the first ever medical trial to offer psilocybin (the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms) to a group of volunteers suffering from clinical depression.

This remarkable documentary produced by Somerset House Residents Dartmouth Films follows three of the volunteers and their families, and the staff running the trial, who hope the controversial treatment has the power to transform millions of lives. 

The film will be followed by a Q&A by some of the creatives behind the film. 

Robin Carhart-Harris, Head of the Imperial College Centre for Psychedelic Research will be on the panel at our Magic of Mushrooms: Psilocybin and Altered States talk.

The Mushrooms programme is kindly supported by the Gaia Art Foundation.
