[Los Angeles] Screening of 'From Shock to Awe"

  • Rave Cinemas Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza 15 4020 Marlton Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90008 United States (map)

Join us for a special screening of ‘From Shock to Awe’ co-hosted by the Aware Project and LAMPS with Q&A to follow.


Screens in 20+ theaters across the US and followed by a live streamed Q&A with cast and filmmakers. The project has the potential to be more than a movie. Cutting across political and socio-economic boundaries, the documentary illustrates a sympathetic and effective way psychedelics can help address PTSD plaguing veterans. Our goal of positive social change goes beyond veterans, and looks to address some of our nation's most pressing mental health issues (e.g. opioid addiction and suicide epidemic).

From Shock to Awe asks ‘how do we heal our deepest wounds?’ An intimate and raw look at the transformational journey of two combat veterans suffering from severe trauma as they abandon pharmaceuticals to seek relief from the mind-expanding world of psychedelics. Recent scientific research coupled with a psychedelic renaissance reveals that these substances can be used to heal PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) for individuals and their families. Beyond the personal stories, FSTA also raises fundamental questions about war, the pharmaceutical industry, and the US legal system.
