Sick Birds Die Easy

directed by Nik Fackler

Exploring white privilege, magical realism, and the apocalypse, director Nik Fackler takes a drug addled conspiracy theorist, an entitled musician, and an American film crew into the jungles of Africa, searching for Iboga, a potent psychedelic plant said to have the ability to heal addiction. What initially begins as a trip towards enlightenment becomes a hilarious attempt at maintaining sanity.
