Seven years in the making, UNITY is a new documentary that explores humanity’s hopeful transformation from living-by-killing into living-by-loving. It is a unique film about compassion for all beings, or all “expressions of life”, going beyond all “separation based on form”, and beyond perceiving opposites. Writer/Director Shaun Monson, collaborating with an astounding cast of 100 celebrity narrators (never before gathered in the history of filmmaking), presents a message of love, tragedy and hope, all set against the backdrop of some of the most compelling 20th and 21st Century footage imaginable.

In the early 1960s, Harvard psychology professors Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert began probing the edges of consciousness through their experiments with psychedelics. Leary became the LSD guru, challenging convention and questioning authority. As a result, with his simple mantra “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out,” Leary spawned a global counter culture movement. Alpert journeyed to the East becoming Ram Dass, a spiritual teacher for an entire generation, author of “Be Here Now,” who continues in his 80s teaching service through compassion. With interviews spanning 50 years, this new documentary, narrated by Robert Redford, invites us to share their intimate and entertaining conversations.

Their ‘Stratagem’: to marry for money. Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest.
