R
In 1960, poet, artist, and beatnik Brion Gysin invented the Dreammachine, a hypnotic light device with the power to induce hallucinations. The Dreammachine enthralled mystics and freethinkers everywhere, with William Burroughs claiming that it could, "storm the citadels of enlightenment." Nik Sheehan's riveting documentary explores the life of Brion Gysin and his quest to transform human consciousness. With interviews from some of the counter-culture's most eccentric icons- from Iggy Pop to singer Marianne Faithfull- FLicKeR is a fascinating exploration of the age-old search for the boundaries of reality.
