Jerónimo M. M. worked for more than a decade on a documentary project exploring ethnobotany, pharmacology, and the roots of faith...

Together with Mark Ellam we began by filming the way in which indigenous peoples have protected themselves from acculturation by hiding their traditions back inside the religions of the colonizers. What we found touched on the very origin of faiths on the process by which religions are created and lead invariably to healing to that point of human history where medicine and religion were not separate things. We extended our investigation to include traditional medicines which, even today, are the only health care that two thirds of the world's population employs.

We traveled a dozen countries and three continents interviewing priests and shamans, scientists and curanderos, intellectuals and illiterate farmers, leading thinkers and anonymous people's whose lives have been transformed by their encounter with these worlds. We have filmed otherworldly rituals and extraordinary behaviors that at the same time manifested something that seemed universal to all mankind.

These common elements made the basis of our investigation
