A voice-over by American psychologist Timothy Leary professes that psychedelic drugs trigger the expansion of consciousness. Meanwhile, the subtitles we read tell us about a teenager from 1990s South London who spends acid-infused weekends with a friend. Following both perspectives simultaneously is a mind-twisting exercise, but Morgan Quaintance’s seamless editing evokes that firm feeling when a connection is established between two people. But just like hallucinations, teenage friendships feel like they’ll last forever − but rarely do.
