Event Originally produced by Kino Lorber in 2014.
Summary 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 counter-culture movement, landing in prison after Nixon called him “the most dangerous man in America”. Alpert journeyed to the East becoming Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher continuing to teach a new generation and the author of the book “Be Here Now”. The cinematic vision quest encourages us to ponder questions about life, drugs & the biggest mystery in the human landscape. Now, nearly 50 years later, DYING TO KNOW re-assesses the lives of two iconic figures, their work, their successes and failures, the times they lived in and their remarkable shared journey through life. "*A pensive documentary shedding light on death and dying, inner space exploration and the sweet fragility of life.*" - ***Spirituality and Practice***
