Eye of the Needle, an Ayahuasca Journey
Cobble Hill Cinemas
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.
