Gambling, Gods and LSD (2013) Trailer
Trailer for Gambling, Gods and LSD.
Blending documentary observation with inspired camerawork, location sound with aural sculpture, director Peter Mettler embarks on a journey following the theme of “transcendence.” Ten years in the making, crafted from over 55 hours of footage, the film reveals a fascinating dichotomy between the indisputable credibility that comes from such a monumental study and the necessary subjectivity provided by the audience in this intuitively structured journey. From religious ceremonies in India to sex stores in America, it’s incredible how people’s motivations remain consistent. Gambling, Gods and LSD provides a look at the vast scope of the world—whether it exists inside or outside our minds is open to interpretation.
