From Shock To Awe


Executive Produced by Maxi Cohen, From Shock to Awe asks, “How do we heal our deepest wounds?” The film is an intimate and raw look at the transformational journey of two combat veterans suffering from severe trauma as they abandon pharmaceuticals to seek relief through the mind-expanding world of psychedelics.

Recent scientific research coupled with a psychedelic renaissance reveals that these substances can be used to heal PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) for individuals and their families. Beyond the personal stories, From Shock to Awe also raises fundamental questions about war, the pharmaceutical industry, and the US legal system.

In 2018, From Shock To Awe recieved the “Mangurama Award for Conscious Documentary Story-telling” and “Best Documentary” at the Psychedelic Film and Music Festival NYC.
