“People v. The State of Illusion is the kind of film you wished came with a transcript; it is full of facts from which ALL OF US WOULD BENEFIT and could very well be responsible for bringing about a genuine change in our perceptions of what we think is reality and what is really of our own creation . . .” Clear Channel Radio
“THIS FILM IS A MUST-SEE FOR ALL THOSE SEEKING TO CHANGE FOR THE BETTER” The Reel Critic
“There is so much in the film to take in that YOU WILL WANT TO SEE IT MULTIPLE TIMES . . I would like to make it required viewing for every student of psychology and all the therapeutic professions, including doctors and nurses – it’s that important.” New Consciousness Review
Good movies are based on the successful attempt to tell a story. People v. The State of Illusion takes you further, by making you part of the story being told. This film, by Austin Vickers, questions the very nature of reality, and through an examination of our perceptions, beliefs and imagination, makes you both judge and jury in what will be the most important trial you will ever witness. This must-see psychological movie includes, as expert witnesses, some of the nation’s leading thinkers in the fields of neuroscience, biochemistry, psychology, quantum physics, and consciousness theory, including Dr. Thomas Moore, Dr. Candace Pert, Debbie Ford, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Robert Jahn, Dr. Peter Senge, Brenda Dunne, and Dr. Michael Vandermark.
People v The State Of Illusion, directed by Scott Cervine and written and produced by Austin Vickers, is set in the notorious “Old Main Prison” of the New Mexico State Penitentiary, and tells the story of Aaron Roberts, a single father who is arrested and tried on charges following an incident that claims the life of a woman. He is convicted and sent to prison, and his daughter becomes a ward of the state. While there, an attorney learns of her plight and the story of her father, and decides to represent her in an emotionally-compelling case against the State. It is an inspiring movie that will wake you up to the power of your imagination, encourage your hope and elevate your spirit.
