Crew
Directed by Nik Sheehan


In 1960, poet artist, and beatnik Brion Gysin invented the Dreammachine, a hypnotic 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 Glysin 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 fascination exploration of the age-old search for the boundaries of reality.

Reviews

"The rare documentary that jumps beyond informative and entertaining into the realm of mind-expanding, FLicKeR blends revelatory biography, energizing philosophy, and seductive trances." San Francisco Weekly

"FlicKeR is steadfast in its belief that Gysin is influential, variety of academics use Gysin as a gateway to discussions of everything from the changing nature of terrorism to iPods, [FLicKeR] energizes his enigma." San Francisco Bay Guardian

...captivating portrait of an artist whose influence far outweighs his fame." - Eye Magazine
