A real-life ‘Breaking Bad’ for the psychedelic set, THE SUNSHINE MAKERS reveals the fascinating, untold story of Nicholas Sand and Tim Scully, the unlikely duo at the heart of 1960s American drug counter-culture. United in a utopian mission to save the planet through the consciousness-raising power of LSD, these underground chemists manufactured a massive amount of acid, including the gold standard for quality LSD, ‘Orange Sunshine,’ all while staying one step ahead of the Feds.
This documentary has thrilled audiences with its stranger-than-fiction look into the lives of two “LSD evangelists.”
Distributing their product through the Brotherhood of the Eternal Love, also known as “The Hippie Mafia,” Sand and Scully found receptive customers throughout the world. Their immodest goal was to produce 750 million doses, enough to keep the earth’s population happily stoned.
From the producer of SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN and LISTEN TO ME MARLON, THE SUNSHINE MAKERS premiered last year at the prestigious DOC NYC film festival to critical acclaim.
