Sick Birds Die Easy (2013) Trailer
Trailer for Sick Birds Die Easy.
Director Nik Fackler leads a cast of characters deep into the jungle of Gabon, Africa, searching for answers, truth and a cure for their addictions. Gabon is home to the spiritual practice of Bwiti, which uses the sacred iboga plant in ceremonies and rituals. Iboga is a powerful hallucinogen thought to be a miracle cure for drug and alcohol addiction. With Nik on his expedition are his paranoid, philosophical drug dealer, Ross; Sam, a musician whose talent is matched by his sense of entitlement; his beautiful French ingenue girlfriend, Emily; and a small crew to document the drug-fueled misadventure. Delving into mysticism, politics, colonialism and human nature, Sick Birds Die Easy is a mind-bending, fantastical social experiment that will leave you questioning your understanding of reality.
