This meta-documentary covers the scene of the premiere, including Interviews with: Mitch Schultz and Dr. Rick Strassman; and a Question and Answer session with Mitch and Rick, as well as Allyson and Alex. The Spirit Molecule weaves an account of Dr. Rick Strassman’s groundbreaking DMT research through a multifaceted approach to this intriguing hallucinogen found in the human brain and hundreds of plants.
Utilizing interviews with a variety of experts to explain their thoughts and experiences with DMT within their respective fields, and discussions with Strassman’s research volunteers brings to life the awesome effects of this compound, and far-reaching theories regarding its role in human consciousness.
Several themes explored include possible roles for endogenous DMT; its theoretical role in near-death and birth experiences, alien-abduction experiences; and the uncanny similarities in Biblical prophetic texts describing DMT-like experiences. Our expert contributors offer a comprehensive collection of information, opinions, and speculation about indigenous use of DMT, the history and future of psychedelic research, and current DMT research. All this, to help us understand the nature of the DMT experience, and its role in human society and evolution.
The subtle combination of science, spirituality, and philosophy within the film’s approach sheds light on an array of ideas that could considerably alter the way humans understand the universe and their relationship to it. Filmed on location at CoSM (http://www.CoSM.org – thanks to the hospitality of Allyson and Alex Grey) the September 2010 east-coast premiere of DMT: The Spirit Molecule, based on the book by Dr. Rick Strassman, is directed by Mitch Schultz and available at http://TheSpiritMolecule.com
