“The Bufo Alvarious movie is truly an exquisite documentary about the Sonoran Desert toad.  Filip Zaruba gives us a picture that is as close as possible to what is truly ineffable, a masterpiece showing us the infinite love and the cosmic experience of non-duality that is our true reality.  We are in the need of healing and awakening more then ever and this film shows us the transformational potential of psychedelic medicines – and specifically of 5-MeO-DMT. The movie is following journeys of several psychonauts, guided by a shaman Octavio Rettig accompanied by his commentary and explanation of the medicine, its possible effects, contraindications, and ways of working with it. Stanislav Grof, Michal Vancura, and Pavel Bem discuss the value of this and other etheogenic medicines on individual and societal level. It is the best film I have seen discussing and showing the experience with 5-MeO-DMT.”
