From the VHS cover:
“…I DON’T WANT COMFORT. I WANT GOD, I WANT POETRY, I WANT REAL DANGER, I WANT FREEDOM, I WANT GOODNESS, I WANT SIN.” — Aldous Huxley
Oliver Hockenhull’s mesmerizing, multi-layered, mind altering exploration of the approaching millennium, hypnotically viewed through the intellect and the life of one of this century’s most prophetic thinkers: Aldous Huxley.
In “Aldous Huxley: The Gravity of Light” Huxley’s social prophecies and cultural criticisms take on a renewed resonance as Hockenhull weaves together rare archival footage, with self-reflective dramatic essays and extravagant visual effects to create an exhilarating, mescaline inspired journey that aggressively questions our presumptions and preconceptions about society, sex, religion, psychoactive drugs, and the perils of technological progress.
It’s a brave new look at our Brave New World that you will never forget.
