The Clinic, is about a woman with a terminal cancer diagnosis who participates in an experimental research study, taking a high dose of psilocybin to face her fears about dying.
Made possible with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the NYS Council on the Arts, administered by the Greene County Council on the Arts through the Community Arts Grants Fund.
This is a narrative film based on rigorous research studies at Johns Hopkins and New York University that have tested the use of entheogenic agents to help patients suffering from emotional distress at the end of life (as well as from addictions and PTSD). These studies have shown strong evidence that the careful use of entheogens such as psilocybin can have long lasting therapeutic effects for people facing a terminal illness.
