What if you were a rap-crazy kid growing up in Edmonton? What if you became friends with rapper Khari “Conspiracy” Stewart? What if Khari told you his amazing story? What if you moved to Toronto and became a filmmaker? Then you’d make Mars Project. It’s at once an homage to friendship and a challenge to conventional thinking about madness.

For half of his life, rapper and performance artist Khari “Conspiracy” Stewart has fought a spiritual war against two demons: Anacron, an intergalactic consciousness that possesses Stewart’s mind, and the Canadian mental health system, which diagnosed him with schizophrenia over a decade ago.

Tormented artist, spiritual shaman, drug-addled rapper, Khari’s unique experience seeks to challenge our understanding of schizophrenia and mental health.
