Though inspired by real-life journals, Guerra’s haunting and beautifully shot monochrome film transports us into the realm of the mystical and surreal. A fascinating story of the relationship between Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and last survivor of his people, and two scientists who work together over the course of 40 years to search the Amazon for a sacred healing plant.

A complicated mixture of myth and historical reality, this film shatters lingering illusions of First World culture as more advanced than any other, except technologically.
