1. Heaven Earth explores the practice and commercialization of amazonian ayahuasca-shamanism in Iquitos.

    The feature-length documentary film portrays all day activities of Percy – a Peruvian healer and another western ayahuasquero, named Ron. Both live near Iquitos and host nightly ayahuasca ceremonies and retreats, mainly for interested westerners.

    Participants of ayahuasca ceremonies, tour operators and –guides, as well as western vision seekers reveal episodes of their internal imagery and recount stories about their journeys.

    A growing global pop culture – swinging between psychotherapeutic healing procedure and spiritual sell-out.
