FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P677274~Dimitri Mugianis~dimitrimugianis]] is an artist and musician who in the 1980s and '90s earned a cult following with his experimental rock band Mr. Unique and the Leisure Class. [[Performer~P677274~Mugianis~dimitrimugianis]] was also a drug addict who spent nearly 20 years dependent on heroin and alcohol. However, [[Performer~P677274~Mugianis~dimitrimugianis]] became aware of Ibogaine, a hallucinogenic drug derived from natural roots that has been used for centuries by shamans in West Africa. With Ibogaine, [[Performer~P677274~Mugianis~dimitrimugianis]] was able to kick drugs and alcohol without painful withdrawal and has been clean ever since. [[Performer~P677274~Mugianis~dimitrimugianis]] became an outspoken advocate for the use of Ibogaine in drug detox, despite the fact it's a Schedule 1 controlled substance in the United States, and has organized underground Ibogaine therapy sessions in the United States and Canada. However, after one such Ibogaine detox nearly led to the death of a patient, [[Performer~P677274~Mugianis~dimitrimugianis]] set out to learn more about its traditional use in West Africa, going so far as to travel to Gabon and undergo traditional rituals with the drug in the company of shamans. Filmmaker [[Performer~P192416~Michel Negroponte~michelnegroponte]] followed [[Performer~P677274~Mugianis~dimitrimugianis]] on his voyage to Africa, and his documentary I'm Dangerous With Love chronicles his experiences and how he believes Ibogaine can change the way we treat drug addiction in North America. I'm Dangerous With Love was an official selection at the 2010 Hot Docs Documentary Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
