Seemingly hopeless drug addict Adrianne is at the end of her tether, suicidal and despairing of ever freeing herself from heroin and methadone – or the opioids prevalent around Death Alley in downtown Vancouver. She seeks the help of a network of alternative healers who provide the psychedelic medicines psilocybin (magic mushrooms) and the rainforest shrub iboga. The use of these to treat depression and anxiety is a growing area of research, and the application of “micro-dosing” has been found to have remarkable success in even the most intractable cases.
Dosed follows Adrianne on her journey to hell and back as she undergoes numerous “trips” – including psychotherapeutic and shamanic sessions – in her struggle for sobriety. Tyler Chandler’s directorial debut manages to be both a compelling investigative documentary, while remaining an intimate and sensitive portrait.
Dedicated to putting the fun back into going to a show or the cinema, the Brunswick Picture House has re-emerged — reimagined and better than ever. Presenting cabarets, live shows, films and a garden kiosk with a delicious menu & great coffee. Kiosk open 1 hr before every event! After laying dormant for over 30 years, the curtains lifted on this old theatre in March 2016 and it began a new lease on life, lovingly restored by the creative team behind the award-winning and internationally acclaimed circus/cabaret sensations LA SOIRÉE and CLUB SWIZZLE. Having survived the wreckers’ ball and the ravages of time, this iconic building’s revival has set the stage for a vibrant and charismatic mix of film, circus, live theatre and family-friendly entertainment. The Brunswick Picture House is a local landmark for the community, for people to meet, be inspired, gossip, laugh and be entertained.
