"MAN ISNíT DYING OF THIRST"
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY VACLAV HAPL

In 1970, the 22-minute film "Man Isn't Dying Of Thirst" by Vaclav Hapl Ė depicting the use of LSD in psychotherapy Ė was produced in Czechoslovakia. At the time, Czechoslovakia was the only country in the world still legally manufacturing LSD. Dr. Milan Hausner was the main consultant on the film.

The award-winning film explores man's struggles to survive in a fast-paced, complex world Ė struggles which for many provoke mental disorders Ė and the clinical use of LSD psychotherapy to cope with mental strain.
