The Wonderland Experience is an absolutely classic cult feature film on the psychedelic world of Goa at the end of the 20th century. The story is about a boy called Charlie who is looking for his missing father in Southern India and finds himself in a surreal and comic psychedelic world.
During a trip to India to visit his father, a young man wakes up on a sun-drenched beach, unsure of where he is or how he got there. Before long he finds himself on an extraordinary journey meeting a series of ever more peculiar characters, in the search for his Dad. Eventually, riddled with confusion and haunted by recurring flashbacks of a party he can't remember, he heads into the jungle, where he's been told his father is waiting for him. Only one thing is certain: all is not what it seems.
The story is a gently surreal and comedic tale based loosely on 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking Glass' by Lewis Carroll. The film was shot entirely in Goa, India, which with it's fantastic range of natural locations, provides a varied and continuously beautiful backdrop to the action. The Wonderland Experience is an upbeat celebration of life, travelling and parties. Written and produced by Andrew brown and directed by Ben Hardyment.
