Jungle Meds (Ayahuasca)


A personal docu-experience on the ancient jungle medicine Ayahuasca.

This is my take on it. I wanted to present the vibe I got from it through this film, rather than attempt at digesting this huge subject into a more traditional format.

The film was shot in the Amazon rainforest of northern Peru. The people filmed were living with a traditional Shipibo tribe family there in Masisea, close to the jungle city Pucallpa. This region is unique as Ayahuasca is said to have originated here. Unlike Iquitos, the healing centre of the world, these areas have more tradition and less tourist traps. While the protagonists were tourists, they managed to find a place offering a very real experience.
