Descending the Mountain

dir. Maartje Nevejan / 2021 / Switzerland, The Netherlands / 78min.
Scientist and zen master descend from the mountain of bliss, to teach us how we can integrate mysticism into our day-to-day life… using psychedelics

Scientist Franz Vollenweider and zen master Vanja Palmers descend from the mountain of bliss, to teach us how we can integrate mysticism into our day-to-day life. Leaving the iconic visuals of the 60’s behind, Nevejan allows animation, sound, and A.I. visual art to create a contemporary rendering of the mystical experience of oneness with nature. “Descending the Mountain” is a mesmerising testimony of inner climate change that shows us how psychedelics could create a revolution in improving mental health and strengthen our connection with our environment.
