Dying to Know

When: Fri., May 20 2016

Dying to Know: Ram Dass & Timothy Leary documents the lives of Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert, both former Harvard professors that became generation-defining thinkers. Leary, once pegged “the most dangerous man in America” by President Nixon, was a world-famous advocate of psychedelic drugs. Alpert found success as Ram Dass, a philosopher and author influenced by Eastern culture. The film explores the personal and professional relationship of the two as well as their achievements. Filmmaker Gay Dillingham will take audience questions post-screening, at 8:35 tonight and at 7:10 on Sunday night at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $10, $8 for members.
