SHROOMS (2023)

FICTION / Super16 / 18'
[directed by Jorge Jácome]

SHROOMS’ starting point is a scientific study in which the psilocybin of magic mushrooms is used for the therapeutic treatment of depression. Using the premise of this study, SHROOMS follows Dan, a young Venezuelan man currently living in Lisbon, who collects magic mushrooms in the forest and distributes them in the city to those in need of help - like a New Age Robin Hood - using pigeons as carriers.
