What was it that made you want to create the documentary film, ‘DMT: The Spirit Molecule”?
I had never heard of dimethyltryptamine prior to encountering it. This was a little over a decade ago, and a friend of mine was moving back to Brazil and we all got together and somebody brought it. Within that 10-minute experience my life changed, and coming back from that experience it was almost immediate that I knew that I was going to make a film about it. I didn’t know it was going to be “DMT: The Spirit Molecule,” but I knew I was going to make a film, and that nobody was talking about DMT. It is a little risky, it’s something that is very unusual and it’s probably one of the bigger reasons that people don’t want to touch it. But I knew that this information had to get out, and not necessarily just for the psychedelic aspect, but just to start thinking of consciousness in a different way. Let’s get out of this three-dimensional reality and start to consider other possibilities, other energies and even other worlds.
