Storyline

A Hole In The Head examines the development of "modern" trepanation as used by people in the United Kingdom, The United States, and The Netherlands for the purpose of attaining a higher level of consciousness. This procedure, used by the ancient Egyptians, Incas, and others, is believed by the voluntarily trepanned to allow for renewed brain pulsations that increase brain blood volume and thereby improve brain function. Interviews regarding the history and efficacy of the procedure are also held with some of the world's most respected neurosurgeons and anthropologists. Written by Anonymous

incredibly weird and fascinating
26 November 2000 | by (Commack, LI) – See all my reviews

This documentary is one of the strangest films I have ever seen. Apparently, about 20-30 people worldwide believe that if they cut a hole in their foreheads that it will make them smarter, happier and more energetic. They all follow a guy who lives in Amsterdam who says some of the weirdest stuff I ever heard. Some of these people even used powerdrills on their own heads! I cant believe this film, I love it so much.
