ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Soul Quest Ayahuasca Church of Mother Earth in Orlando,

This amazing film has won two film festival awards:

"From Shock to Awe" won the BEST DOCUMENTARY Award at the Psychedelic Film and Music Festival in New York and the Mangurama Award for Conscious Documentary Storytelling at Illuminate Film Festival in Sedona, Arizona.

The special one-night-only event "Coming Home: Beyond Veterans Day" will include theatrical screenings in over 25 U.S. cities. Screenings will be followed by a live Q&A with the cast and filmmakers.

"From Shock to Awe" shares the stories of two combat veterans suffering from a host of negative emotions, including fear, anxiety, depression and anger, brought on by their experiences in the war. After traditional Western medicine fails them, the men seek healing at Soul Quest Ayahuasca Church of Mother Earth in Orlando, Florida, where they attend a weekend ceremonial retreat. Several times over the weekend, they consume ayahuasca, a traditional, spiritual plant medicine brew, in their quest for healing.

The documentary shares the veterans' hopes and fears about taking ayahuasca as well as their experiences during their weekend ceremony. The film follows up with the veterans several months later to learn the impacts of their experience with ayahuasca. It also shows the impacts that the veterans' experience with ayahuasca had on their families and how their wives were led to embark on their own ayahuasca journeys.

The premiere event on Nov. 12, 2018, will launch a social impact campaign that aims to open a dialogue about trauma, the pharmaceutical industry, the U.S. legal system and saving lives.
