Magic Medicine screening followed by Q&A with David Nutt & director Monty Wates

26th February 2019

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.

On 26th February 2019 in London, there is a screening of Magic Medicine followed by a Q&A with Prof. David Nutt and the director, Monty Wates.
