This video has been a great inspiration. The Cuban surfers neither have fancy boards nor epic waves – yet they have lots and lots of fun, in other words: They have the original spirit of surf. Those guys show that the happiest people do not have the best of everything but they simply make the best of everything. However, also the seed of our human drama appears when the keyword champion is introduced. If you speak Spanish, enjoy the Cuban accent which is very, very similar to the Canarian. If you don’t speak Spanish, enjoy the beautiful pictures – you’ll get the message anyway.

During the second half it becomes quite obvious that you’re watching a marketing campaign for the album, but anyway – it’s available for free, comes with lots of great music and provides entertaining insights into a time when chart-breaking hits were edited with scissors.
Sieg Heil, the United States of America will not negociate with terrorists, Steampunk spacecrafts in intergalactic battles… all rolled into one! Beside just being hilarious, this comic-styled flick is full of allusions and even comes with a message – A must see for all lovers of trash and fiction!

Make up your own mind about it:
Im Stile einer klassischen Dokumentation wird auf dieser DVD die bewegte und weltbewegende Geschichte des LSD erzählt, wobei selbst einschlägig belesene Zeitgenossen von der faszinierenden Zu- sammenstellung des Filmmaterials begeistert sein dürften. Trotz der zweifelsohne erhebenden Erfahrungen, welche ‘die Substanz’ ermöglicht, bleibt der Ton angenehm bodenständig und neutral.
Die chronologische Erzählung der LSD-Geschichte erfolgt im Wechsel von körnigen Schwarz-Weiß-Aufnahmen, frühen Farbfilmen [...weiter nach dem *Klick*]
