It is not by chance that underground trance spread more rapidly and strongly in Israel than anywhere else in the world. Its penetrating, mesmerizing beat found a deep echo in the hearts of the young masses fed up with war, violence, and politics. Filmmaker Isri Halpern follows the ups and downs of three rave organizers who operate under the banner “Peace and Love Productions.” Filmed over the course of two years, his film follows the trio from their first ecstatic parties, into the living room of their religious, working-class families, and deep into the fray of eventual and sometimes violent clashes with the police. Psychedelic Zion exposes the real deal - it’s a film about new-wave music, new-wave drugs, a new state of consciousness, and a new generation’s age-old struggle to define itself.


A cult film in Israel, Psychedelic Zion was the second most successful documentary released in theaters in 2001. To a trance community fighting for its right to exist, its release is considered to be their most exciting achievement to date.


Afterparty to follow. Listen to a local DJ collective spin the latest in electronic sound as local breakdancers and glowstickers battle it out on the dancefloor. $2 beers and free snacks.
