SICK BIRDS DIE EASY
2013, Gravitas Ventures, 100 min, USA, Dir: Nicholas Fackler

A drug-addled conspiracy theorist, a love-drunk musician, and an American film crew head deep into the jungles of Western Africa searching for Iboga, an extremely potent psychedelic plant said to have the ability to heal drug addiction; what initially begins as a trip towards enlightenment then becomes a desperate attempt at maintaining sanity. Director Nicholas Fackler provides a mad mix of compellingly hilarious characters and an array of expertly wielded lo-fi and hi-fi cameras to explode the fiction/non-fiction divide in this mind-bending social experiment.
