Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic December 18, 2011
By Rhodan
Excellent introduction to a major Peruvian "ayahuascero." The interviews show the dedication to healing and respect for the plants that is at the heart of authentic ayahuasca medicina. It was a pleasure to hear Don Jose singing some of his icaros, talking about the plants, and giving his views on the commercialization of ayahuasca. The interview & artwork of Pablo Amaringo was a pleasant bonus.

Authentic ayahuasca ceremonies such as those conducted by Don Jose are serious journeys into healing and are not intended for psychedelic pleasure trips. There is little to observe outwardly, much to see inwardly. I'm glad director Michael Weise chose not to sensationalize this plant medicine & Don Jose's work with staged ceremonies and trippy hallucinatory graphics, but instead just stayed with the basics and, especially, the deep humanism of Don Jose.

Oh no, where do I start...? My husband and I are seasoned psychonauts though we have never tried ayahuasca. We were looking for an informational-documentary-type video that shows the history of ayahuasca. We were also interested in seeing how it's made, how it's used, the effects, etc. Sadly, this video gave us NONE of that, and I mean none. This video is poorly done with terrible sound quality with no subtitles. It basically takes you on a small tour through the region where some people are still known to make their own ayahuasca, but didn't show anyone making it, consuming it, or even explain the effects or anything. The entire video is done in Spanish (because that's where they are) but with someone constantly translating to English. They really should have had the Spanish in there with English voice overs during editing, or perhaps use subtitles, anything. But had they done that we would have only had a 15 minute movie.

On top of all the general disappointment, we hung in there, expecting to see this crew actually doing ayahuasca and document the effects and spiritual journeys. But no, none of that either. They show us the scenery as they go deeper into the jungle to find a spot to do it, but never do it on camera nor talk about it afterwards. To make matters worse, they had someone do their own little soundtrack that consisted of one very annoying (and loud) song over and over and over again. It was like fingernails on a chalk board. It was annoying. But again we endured hoping to see something interesting.

About the only interesting tidbit was seeing Pablo Amaringo's art work. And even then they teased us by saying he did some amazing piece for them, but they weren't allowed to show it on camera and they could only look at it once a year themselves. Doh!
