Bufo Alvarius - The Underground Secret has been released and can be viewed online (pay per view) here:

A radical testimony of the strongest known natural psychedelic, tryptamine 5-MeO-DMT produced by Bufo Alvarius, a toad of the Sonoran desert. The breathtaking audio-visual adventure is enhanced by immersive animations inspired by the psychoactive effects of this extraordinary substance. Fascinating stories of a group of Czech psychonauts are combined with personal insights of Stanislav Grof, a nestor of transpersonal psychology, and Octavio Rettig, a modern shaman who has facilitated ceremonial contact with Bufo Alvarius for thousands of volunteers from around the world. For many, the experience has been life-changing. Originally intended to simply document these experiences, the film evolved into an intense meditation on the nature of consciousness and being.

"A stunning visual documentary exploring the science and shamanism of the Bufo Alvarius toad, the non-dual reality of our true nature, and the powerful experiences of seekers that dare to confront the ultimate mystery of the Divine within." - Rak Razam
"Filip Zaruba's film on the experience of smoking the venom of the Sonora Desert Toad – Bufo Alvarius – provides eloquent and elegant testimony to the visionary worlds that can be opened up by the ingestion of this powerful natural hallucinogen. While such experiences inevitably transcend our capacity of communication, yet these masters of image and sound are able to convey something of the awesome mystery of these visions." - Ralph Metzner, Ph.D.
"A glimpse of the Divine. Congratulations to Filip Zaruba and his team for accepting the immense challenge to make the invisible visible and to gently deliver us to vast inner universes in their new film Bufo Alvarius.To give audiences a glimpse of the Divine is no small feat and only rarely attempted. The experts appearing in this film prepare the groundwork for the superb special light effects that simulate the frog medicine journey. Dr. Octavio Rettig is especially lucid when he describes what he has learned from being a shaman/toad medicine facilitator and guide to more than 8000 people. This grounding gives viewers a foothold from which to experience other realms realized through the film's tapestry of music, songs, and special light effects. Kudos also to the brave toad travelers who allow us an intimate ride from Blast-Off to Return. Five stars for a film that attempts to answer the big question about how to get from "here" to "there". Onward!" - Michael Wiese
"The Bufo Alvarious movie is truly an exquisite documentary about the Sonoran Desert toad.  Filip Zaruba gives us a picture that is as close as possible to what is truly ineffable, a masterpiece showing us the infinite love and the cosmic experience of non-duality that is our true reality.  We are in the need of healing and awakening more then ever and this film shows us the transformational potential of psychedelic medicines – and specifically of 5-MeO-DMT. The movie is following journeys of several psychonauts, guided by a shaman Octavio Rettig accompanied by his commentary and explanation of the medicine, its possible effects, contraindications, and ways of working with it. Stanislav Grof, Michal Vancura, and Pavel Bem discuss the value of this and other etheogenic medicines on individual and societal level. It is the best film I have seen discussing and showing the experience with 5-MeO-DMT." - Veronika Gold, MA, SEP
