Nirvan Mullick - Director, Producer

Nirvan is an award-winning filmmaker working at the intersection of story-telling and social impact. Nirvan has created viral films and campaigns, from Caine’s Arcade and Imagination.org to the UN Foundation’s #EarthToParis campaign. Nirvan’s work has been featured in the New York Times, New Yorker, NBC, ABC, CBS, Christian Science Monitor, has films in MoMA’s permanent collection, and speaks about creativity and story telling to companies and non-profits worldwide. Nirvan received an MFA in Experimental Animation from CalArts and a BA in Philosophy and Fine Arts from New College in Sarasota, Florida - the same New College where Rick Doblin went to college in the 70’s and first experimented with psychedelics. Rick was in Nirvan’s very first experimental film, made at New College in 1996, and Nirvan has been tracking Rick’s work for decades. This unique history helped lead to the unique collaboration that is this film.
