Synopsis
Uncover an ancient South American ritualized medicine and mysterious hallucinogenic substance known as ayahuasca. Director, Daniel LeMunyan leads the viewer through a visually striking exploration into the Peruvian Amazon and further into depths of the human consciousness. Ayahuasca’s active ingredient DMT or Dimethyltryptamine causes intense, sometimes nightmarish hallucinations lasting for up to 8 hours. Blended and cooked slowly, this brew is a mixture of 2 plants found only in the Amazon and is used by locals to enter a deep trance that is said to heal the body and unlock the subconscious mind. Guided by shamans, a person enters the eye of the needle and faces his own truths, fears, and enlightenment.
