The first trailer and poster for director Sebastian Silva’s upcoming comedy Crystal Fairy have been released online. The film stars Michael Cera as an American expat who, while on a trip in Chile, sets out in search of the prized San Pedro cactus along with three Chilean brothers in order to reap its hallucinatory benefits. The pic is one of two Michael Cera-led indies that Silva shot in Chile, with the other being the psychological horror pic Magic Magic. Both premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and Crystal Fairy certainly looks to be a rather nutty trip of a film.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to check out the poster. The film also stars Gaby Hoffman, Juan Andres Silva, Jose Miguel Silva, and Agustin Silva. Crystal Fairy opens on July 12th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Crystal Fairy:
On a trip through Chile a boorish American expat named Jamie (Michael Cera) and three Chilean brothers plan to set off in search of the prized San Pedro cactus and its promise of beachy hallucinations. But in the previous night’s drunken stupor Jamie invites a free-spirited fellow American (Gaby Hoffmann), whose devil-may-care worldview gives them more of an adventure than any of them had bargained for.
