‘ENTITY’ - A scientific quest for communion with divinity
Are experiences and beings encountered under the influence of psychedelics, in particular DMT, real or just a hallucination? Are plants containing psychedelic substances a gateway to another dimension and what can we learn from those entities?
In the mid 90s Rick Strassman conducted the first scientific experiment with DMT (Dimethyltriptanmine) that was documented in his book and the film ‘DMT - The Spirit Molecule’. ‘Entity’ is walking in its footsteps taking his research even further, where no-one has ever gone before. Participants: Rick Strassman, Graham Hancock, Dennis McKenna, Rupert Sheldrake, Amanda Feilding, Roland Griffiths, Alex and Allyson Grey, Daniel Pinchbeck and many more.
Feature length documentary. Coming 2020.

MUMFORD & SONS SOUNDTRACK - HOMME LESS - TRAILER
"Thomas Wirthensohn made a film we love, 'Homme Less', wrote Mumford & Son's Winston Marshall. "It follows a close neighbor of mine at the time, Mark, a neighbor I never met, but inevitably we'd have brushed shoulders several times. Mark is one of the many men that make New York what it is, and Thomas' film is a perfect portrait of the beast that the city is. He kindly used his footage and put it against our song 'Tompkins Square Park', also the neighborhood in which Mark and I lived."

'Follow your bliss but be prepared to be your nightmare!'
From all outside appearances, Mark seems to have the glamorous New York City life that many would envy. Handsome and always impeccably dressed, the charismatic former male model works as a fashion photographer, appears in movies and attends the best parties. When he leaves those events, however, he heads to the East Village— not to an overpriced loft, but to a hidden corner of a rooftop to sleep each night. HOMME LESS exposes the dark underbelly of the American Dream in an often-merciless city.

Directed, filmed, sound-recorded and co-edited by Thomas Wirthensohn
Produced by Filmhaus Vienna and Schatzi Productions in association with Thought Engine, NYC.
