Summary:
Phillip K. Dick is considered by many as one of the world's greatest science fiction writers ever. As a sufferer of mental illness himself, he had the ability to turn his hallucinations about the universe into an extraordinary writing career.

During his lifetime, Dick produced an astonishing amount of prize winning novels and short stories which were translated into more than 25 languages.

His books inspired iconic movies that generated more than a billion dollars worldwide. Three of his literary works were transformed into blockbuster movies:
* Blade Runner
* Minority Report
* Total Recall

Dick's stories were often surrealistic fantasies in which characters discovered that their everyday world was an illusion, generated by external entities or otherwise the adventures of an unreliable narrator.

Several years before his death, Philip started having mystical experiences that affected his every day life. As a result, he started to wonder if what he had imagined for his stories was real and if what he had imagined for his stories was real and if life was just an illusion or the creation of each person's subjectivity.

This in-depth program explores Philip K. Dick's world, a universe full of mysteries and intrigues.
