Night Soil - Fake Paradise

  • 32'
  • USA

Night Soil examines the healing effect of the hallucinatory plant Ayahuasca on modern man's troubled mind. Can Ayahuasca be, for Western civilisation now, what LSD was for the 1960s? How can shamanism, medicinal drugs, sexuality and the return of the feminine be aligned with the narcissism of cyberspace? Can empathy, spirituality, feminism and ecological consciousness enable a healthy future for all living organisms on the planet?
