Dying To Know

The Film

Two friends, Ram Dass & Timothy Leary, the era they shaped and their exploration of the next frontier - death. Narrated by Robert Redford

In the early 1960's Harvard psychology professors Timothy Leary & Richard Alpert began probing the edges of consciousness through their experiments with psychedelics.

Leary became the LSD guru challenging convention, questioning authority and as a result spawned a global counter culture movement landing him in prison after Nixon called him the most dangerous man in America.

Alpert became Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher for an entire generation teaching service through compassion leading his followers through a collective spiritual transformation.

These two very complex and controversial characters danced in, out and through each other's lives until ultimately Leary's terminal cancer inspired their final meeting.

In this historic the two luminaries engaged in a deep conversation about life, death and the psychedelic explorations that began it all.  Soon after Ram Dass suffered a massive stroke, a surprising new chapter that gave his observations ever more depth.

Dying To Know dives deep into the cultural taboos of sex, drugs and death while celebrating a friendship of epic proportions between two unlikely characters that shaped a generation.

In the last existing footage of their relationship they invite us to ponder age-old questions about the great mystery of life,  death.
