Giancarlo's recommendation

In 2005 my girlfriend at the time who is now my wife organized an Ayahuasca ceremony at her friend Alie’s  “peniche” house boat in the Seine in Paris. Initially I did not fully comprehend the potential of this practice but I understood it was important. I got a glimpse on Bliss and Nirvana and felt compelled to go deeper. At a MAPS psychedelic conference in Oakland in 2007 i thought that we had to make a doc on these substances  when i heard that filmmaker Oliver Hockenhull was already working on one. My filmmaker friend Robin made an introduction and I reached out offering to help. Oliver was open enough to let Mini Willis edit a shorter, more commercial version, and that is how N2N was born. It is a great introduction to the magic of 5 compounds: lsd, ayahuasca, psilocybin, mdma and cannabis. If you want to go deeper in understanding Aya and mdma please watch “from Shock to Awe” and if you want to know more about Cannabis medical properties check “weed the people”.

Through interviews with the world’s foremost researchers, writers, psychologists and pioneers in psychedelic psychotherapy, we explore the history of five powerful psychedelic substances (LSD, Psilocybin, MDMA, Ayahuasca and Cannabis) and their previously established medicinal potential. Strictly focusing on the science and medicinal properties of these drugs. The filmmakers understand that this film touches on controversial territory but are committed in their belief in the message:

For the first time in two generations, the use of these drugs is not being presented as harmful or as self-indulgent, but as a rational and valuable addition to therapeutic practice. Several well-respected researchers are conducting clinical trials to treat a range of afflictions: PTSD, addictions and the psychological stresses suffered by late-stage terminal cancer patients. The initial results of all these studies are remarkable. Clients of licensed therapists are using psychedelics not as escape routes or addictive crutches, but in a quest for transformation, mental health, creativity, intellectual and spiritual enhancement and insight.
