  1. Entheogenesis Australis (EGA) presents a Byron Bay premiere double feature film screening.

'Icaros: A Vision' is a visually stunning film shaped like a shamanic journey, steeped in a psychoactive brew, exploring fear and destiny in the jungle of the mind. Tickets are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. - Click Here for Ticket - FILM ONE Journeys to the Edge of Consciousness is a part-animated feature length documentary film by producer / director Rob Harper. Take an animated trip into the depths of the human mind with three brave pioneers of the 1950/60’s - Aldous Huxley, Timothy Leary and Alan Watts. The film presents three psychedelic trips by these world-famous authors that together changed them, and Western culture, forever. Combining stylish, minimalist animation with a rich, immersive soundscape, Journeys creates a unique cinematic spectacle, inviting you to relive the highs - and the lows - of the psychedelic experience from the edge of your seat. Sixty years later we put these historic trips into a modern context, sitting down with twelve leading current thinkers to ask: "What can expanded states of mind teach us about ourselves, the world and our place in it?" “An ecstatic voyage beyond the gates. Thanks for the trip.” TONY GRISONI 'FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS' “This film is a beautiful rendition of the eternal search by humans for a gateway to the great mystery.” TAV SPARKS, AUTHOR OF 'THE POWER WITHIN' - Click Here for Ticket - - Click Here For The Facebook Event Page - FILM TWO Icaros: A Vision is a film shaped like a shamanic journey, steeped in a psychoactive brew, exploring fear and destiny in the jungle of the mind. A film by Leonor Caraballo and Matteo Norzi. Her medical options exhausted, an American woman travels to the Amazon in search of a miracle. Thanks to a young ayahuasca shaman who is losing his eyesight, she learns instead to confront her ‘susto’: the disease of fear. Icaros: A Vision is a story about fear and the release from fear – the fear of illness and of death, but also the fear of life and living. It’s about the possibility of living through one’s fear – which is what the Amazonian plant Ayahuasca is good at getting you to do. Centred on the nightly ceremonies that are the main feature of shamanic retreats, Icaros revels in darkness, replicating a shamanic journey. The film mixes in elements of reality. Set in an actual Ayahuasca retreat in Peru, it features real shamans and indigenous non-actors from the Shipibo community, mixed in with western actors. Aspects of the film are based on co-director Leonor Caraballo’s true experiences. She had metastatic breast cancer when the shoot began. Although she dedicated herself to the project until the very end, sadly she died before she could see the film finished. The film is also driven by the conviction that acknowledging the power of plants is the best way to change the jeopardised future of the Amazon – itself like a dying patient. The exploitation of Shipibo lands and communities by oil and timber companies continues. Over the next 20 years, massive tracts will be destroyed to produce only enough oil to sate U.S. demand for, at the most, two weeks. The men and women who have the knowledge of healing plants are finding few in the younger generation who will cultivate their practices. Thus part of the film’s goal is to bring attention to the work, life and knowledge of the Shipibo Conibo people. Icaros: A Vision is a filmic tapestry about the meeting of cultures, a West in search of its lost soul and the indigenous Shipibo adapting their expansive practices and unique view of the universe. Finally, the story takes place in Iquitos, the same town where Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo was shot more than 30 years ago, and the hotel Casa Fitzcarraldo hosts a key scene in the film. - Click Here for Ticket - - Click Here For The Facebook Event Page - Drop past the EGA web page - http://www.entheogenesis.org

Fantastic Fungi, directed by Louie Schwartzberg, is a consciousness-shifting film that takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offer us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges. Imagine an organism that feeds you, heals you, reveals secrets of the universe and could help save the planet. Fantastic Fungi is a revelatory time-lapse journey about the magical, mysterious and medicinal world of fungi and their power to heal, sustain and contribute to the regeneration of life on Earth that began 3.5 billion years ago. You’ll see it through the eyes of mycologists, discussing the unlimited potential of fungi in the fields of food, medicine, expanding consciousness, bioremediation, neurogenesis and treating end-of-life anxiety. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The screenings will be accompanied by a mycological panel featuring ecologist and environmental photographer Dr Alison Pouliot, mycologist Caine Barlow, ecologist Sapphire McMullan-Fisher, fashion designer and founder of Mycelium Made, Amanda Morglund, and President of PRISM, Vice President of EGA, research fellow in Medicinal Chemistry at Monash University, and co-lead investigator of the upcoming Melbourne psilocybin trials at St Vincent's Hospital, Dr Martin Williams. The panels will be facilitated by the coordinator of Fungimap, Cameron Durnsford, and Enpsychedelia host, Nick Wallis, will MC.
