The Shaman & Ayahuasca
Subjects: Documentary, Drugs, World Studies
Experience a drug more powerful than LSD... Ayahuasca is a entheogentic or psychoactive vine-based plant brew that have been used for healing by shamans for thousands of years. It is widely known throughout South America for its healing and visionary properties that has, in recent years, caught the attention of the Western world. Ayahuasca is called a ‘plant teacher’ because it can heal physical, psychological, and emotional blocks. This is done through vivid visions that take the patient to other realms and dimensions providing profound insights into human beings’ true nature and place in the cosmos.
Intrigued by these extraordinary claims, filmmaker Michael Wiese went to the home of Don Jose Campos, an internationally known Peruvian shaman or curandero, to experience first hand the healing and transformational aspects of Ayahuasca. Shot on location in the jungle and in the Amazonian river towns of Pulcallpa and Iquitos Peru, this 72-minute film documents the shamanic work and ayahuasca ceremonies of Don Jose Campos and includes the last filmed interview with internationally renowned visionary painter and former shaman Pablo Amaringo.
