Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics with Live Performance by Yo La Tengo

Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics

"Have A Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics" is a documentary featuring real-life tripping stories from A-list actors, comedians, and musicians. Star-studded reenactments and surreal animations bring their comedic hallucinations to life. The film explores the pros, cons, history, future, science, pop cultural impact, and cosmic possibilities of hallucinogens. The film also acts as an unofficial user’s guide for these consciousness altering compounds, and helps dispel the scare myths of the After School Special era. The film tackles some big questions: Can psychedelics have a role in treating mental health? Do they make us jump out of windows? Is love really all we need? Can trees talk?
