Magic Medicine

1st June 2019 - Birmingham

Can magic mushrooms cure depression?

Over 4 years, filmmaker Monty Wates was given exclusive access to the first ever medical trial, run by Dr Robin Carhart-Harris at Imperial College London 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.

This screening of Magic Medicine is followed by a Q&A with Prof. David Nutt, Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College.
