New movie follows a group of scientists challenging medicine’s most sacred cows.

on-the-back-of-the-tiger-skeptiko

On the Back of a Tiger, uses interviews, experiments, and animations to weave together an alternate model of life, one that could have a profound impact on our understanding of disease, aging, and consciousness. The film will also confront head-on the institutionalized problems in our scientific and medical establishments, and how they’ve led to fundamental flaws in our understanding of biology. The ultimate goal is to spark change in the establishments before these incredible ideas are lost to history.
Approximately 35% of content has been captured, with eight iconoclastic scientists and thinkers already filmed (including past Skeptiko guest Dr. Michael Persinger). The film just finished a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, ensuring that production will continue. Many more interviews are planned, and they’d love to hear suggestions form the Skeptiko community!
