Film | From Shock to Awe

This powerful film offers us an intimate, raw look at the transformational journey of two combat veterans suffering from severe PTSD as they abandon pharmaceuticals to seek relief through unconventional means: the use of the Amazonian psychedelic, ayahuasca, as well as MDMA. It raises fundamental questions about war, the pharmaceutical industry, and our legal system, but it is above all a gripping account of two men and their spouses and families’ struggles to find healing. Introduced by Janine Sagert, one of the film’s producers.
