New York, NY -- June 27, 2017 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce that Dying to Know: Ram Dass & Timothy Leary, a film by Gay Dillingham and narrated by Robert Redford, is now available on Blu-ray and DVD. This documentary explores the work and relationship of the two men who found themselves at the forefront of the 1960s counterculture revolution, and examines questions related to life and death and expanded consciousness through psychedelics.
A winner of the Impact Award at the Illuminate Film Festival, Dying to Know becomes available on Blu-ray and DVD June 27th, with bonus features including additional interviews and the trailer.
Dying to Know: Ram Dass & Timothy Leary is an intimate portrait celebrating two very complex, controversial characters in an epic friendship that shaped a generation.
In the early 1960s, Harvard Psychology Professors Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert began probing the edges of consciousness through their experiments with psychedelics. Dr. Leary became the LSD guru, challenging convention, questioning authority, and spawned a global counter culture movement, landing in prison after Nixon called him, "the most dangerous man in America." Dr. Alpert journeyed to India becoming Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher for an entire generation who still continues his teaching of service through compassion.
With footage spanning 80 years the film invites us to ponder questions about life, drugs, consciousness and the biggest mystery in the human landscape: death.
