Ashland Documentary Film & Discussion Series presents The Brain: What is Reality? (Part 1 of 6). The film explores, color, time perception, synesthesia, light and more. We meet people whose experiences reveal important clues about how the brain constructs reality, including the Alcatraz prisoner who was locked in the notorious ‘Dark Hole’ for 29 days and yet experienced richly colorful moments. His experience, along with those who have experienced total sensory deprivation show us that even when sensory input to the brain stops, the show still goes on. Why?
