The film project, "Dying to Know” is a cinematic vision quest encouraging its viewers to ponder questions about life, drugs and death, the biggest mystery in the human landscape.
In the early 1960s Harvard psychology professors Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert began probing the edges of consciousness through their experiments with psychedelics. Leary became a missionary for mind altering drugs, asking us to think for ourselves, igniting a global countercultural movement. Alpert journeyed to the East becoming Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher and continued to teach a new generation.
