Dying to Know: Ram Dass and Timothy Leary

Ram Dass and Timothy Leary shared an epic friendship that spanned decades and shaped a generation. Gay Dillingham’s intimate portrait celebrates these two very complex, controversial characters tracking them from the early 1960s when as Harvard psychology professors they began probing the vast realms of consciousness through their experiments with psychedelics. Timothy Leary became the LSD guru, challenging convention, questioning authority and spawning a global counter culture movement – “Turn on, tune in, drop out” – This all before landing in prison after President Richard Nixon branded him “the most dangerous man in America”. Meanwhile, Alpert journeyed to the East becoming Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher who continues in his 80’s to teach service through compassion. Spanning 50 years, the film invites us into the future encouraging us to ponder questions about life, drugs & the biggest mystery of all: death.

Love and Friendship

Writer-director Whit (METROPOLITAN, LAST DAYS OF DISCO, BARCELONA, DAMSELS IN DISTRESS) Stillman brings a unique sense and sensibility to his adaptation of an unpublished Jane Austen novel that stars Kate Beckinsale as a sassy social climber in the 1790s who’s blissfully unaware of her own self-absorption, and who doesn’t let the truth get in the way of a good story, after all “facts are horrid things”.
