People v. The State of Illusion in N.Y. next month

EDITOR'S UPDATE: Variety posts review by Dennis Harvey 8 April 2012.

Samuel Goldwyn Films debuts Austin Vicker's new movie People v. The State of Illusion in May in New York City according to magazine Natural Awakenings' article, "New Film Explores the Nature of Perception, Imagination and Reality" today. This movie features Thomas Moore, Debbie Ford, Joe Dispenza, Peter Senge and others as expert witnesses, some of our "leading thinkers in the fields of neuroscience, biochemistry, psychology, and quantum physics... Their expert testimony helps answer the film’s central questions: What is real, and can we really change?"

According to the article, "Reviewers for The Huffington Post and others have called the film 'A Must See' and compared the feature-length film to What The Bleep Do We Know? hailing the documentary as a powerful and compelling exploration of the science and power of perception and imagination, as well as a treatise on how habitual thoughts shape our reality." Vickers claims viewers are "given a way to transcend their illusions."
