Has anyone been following up on these two new documentaries coming out this year?

Orange Sunsine


Quote:
If you are going to break the law, you’ll need a little help from your friends.

In the early 1960’s, a group of family, friends and surfers out of sleepy, coastal Orange County, California formed a church centered around psychedelics. The group was known as the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, and their mission was to change the world.

Featuring interviews with founding members, including heads of the group Michael Randall and Carol Griggs who have never shared their story before, the film offers a rare insider look into the provocative group, following them through their radicalization from idealist students to outlaws.

Using photos and super 8 recreations, Orange Sunshine whisks viewers away on a drug smuggling tale like no other.

Angered by America’s war in Vietnam and determined to bring about positive social change, former members share their personal experiences of “turning on.” But in just a few short years, as demand grew, they would move very quickly from experimenting, to manufacturing LSD, trafficking, sale and distribution.

Part cat-and-mouse, part exploration of the groundwork that would eventually become The War on Drugs, the film speaks to former members, defense attorney Michael Kennedy, and key law enforcement pursuing the Brotherhood, as their operations grow to include other illicit drugs and they travel through Europe, Afghanistan and South America, growing up, falling in love, and constantly evading capture. We are taken through first-hand accounts of LSD advocate Timothy Leary’s infamous prison break, and the Federal takedown of the group as they risk their family, lives and freedom, in the name of enlightenment.

Together we look back with the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, once the largest distributors of Hash and Psychedelics in the world, at this heady, tumultuous period in America’s history - what they gained, the price they paid, and what that means for the America of today.

The Sunshine Makers


Quote:
A real-life Breaking Bad for the psychedelic set, The Sunshine Makers reveals the entertaining, untold story of Nicholas Sand and Tim Scully, the unlikely duo at the heart of 1960s American drug counterculture. United in a utopian mission to save the planet through the consciousness- raising power of LSD, these underground chemists manufactured a massive amount of acid, including the gold standard for quality LSD, Orange Sunshine, as they tried to stay one step ahead of the feds.

A few short excerpts:

https://vimeo.com/145522551

Both of these look incredibly interesting. Many of these other psychedelic-related documentaries seem to fade into obscurity after they have been screened at numerous festivals. Does anyone know if these will be sold on DVD, or if we will be able to pay for a download or something after they have made the rounds? I would love to know more! Pleased

I'm unfamiliar with the history of The Brotherhood of Eternal Love, should be an interesting watch.

I came across this interview with the director recently

looks very interesting, thanks for sharing!

The books "acid dreams" as well as "brotherhood of eternal love" are excellent too.

I 100% agree with Acid Dreams. I originally read it online somewhere but have since bought a paper copy for myself, I think there is no better book afaik that tells the history of LSD, and the social changes that came with it, from a variety of angles and written in a really engaging and fun to read way. Brotherhood of Eternal Love is still on my to-read list, but I will probably be picking it up sometime later this year Smile

I think there were a couple of factual mistakes with brotherhood of eternal love, forgot what it was, but for the most part it is right, and its a very interesting read.

I hear that the Orange Sunshine documentary is now available on iTunes.

I read 'Acid Dreams' recently and it was an interesting book, thanks for the recommendation. Smile

Music is alive and in your soul. It can move you. It can carry you. It can make you cry! Make you laugh. Most importantly, it makes you feel! What is more important than that?

Orange Sunshine, the book by Nick Schou about The Brotherhood of Eternal Love is a good read. I look forward to seeing the Documentary.

Another good read is "Storming Heaven - LSD and the American Dream" by Jay Stevens

The Sunshine Makers is online today, looking forward to watching over the weekend.

I think we'll hear more from Nick Sand in this one, although the best quote so far has to go to Michael Randall in the trailer...

Both movies are very well made and share their respective stories directly from the mouths of the people who were there. Highly recommended! Thumbs up

I posted this already in this thread:
https://www.dmt-nexus.me/forum/default.aspx?g=posts&m=786587#post786587

But if you were interested in the sunshine makers, then you will probably also like to read this reddit thread, where e.g. Scully does some Q&A on it:

I claim not that this is the truth. As this is just what got manifested into my mind at the current position in time on this physical plane. So please feel not offended by anything I say.
