Can magic mushrooms cure depression? Over 4 years, filmmaker Monty Wates was given exclusive access to the first ever medical trial to give psilocybin (the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms) to a group of volunteers suffering from clinical depression. His remarkable film follows three of the volunteers and their families, and the ambitious staff running the trial, who are hoping this controversial treatment will have the power to transform millions of lives.

Followed by a Science Oxford chaired Q&A with Dr Carhart-Harris (Head of Psychedelic Research, Imperial College London) who features in the documentary.

Dir. Monty Wates. UK, 2018. 1h 19m. Starring Robin Carhart-Harris, Rosalind Watts.
