A unique and audacious film that took ten years to complete, Gambling, Gods and LSD is an experimental documentary that defies easy categorization. Described by visionary director Peter Mettler as being “the human quest for transcendence and meaning, the denial of death, the illusion of safety and our relationship to nature, the film encompasses a range of styles and approaches from travelogue to music video from essay to video art.” The film takes us on a journey of discovery to various parts of the globe observing the different ways in which people seek transcendence. Mettler interviews heroin addicts, gamblers, born again Christians, and 97 year old Albert Hoffman, the inventor of LSD. – CANADIAN FILM ENCYCLOPEDIA
