Gringo Shaman

9 06 2010

I recently had the opportunity to see the documentary film, Gringo Shaman.   Beautifully filmed and edited, the film profiles an American who followed the calling and became a full-fledged ayahuasquero.   The feel of this documentary is somewhat different from others, successfully fusing raw sincerity with artistic direction to create a very appropriate aesthetic.  I definitely recommend it.

You can order the DVD as well as Shipibo-style merchandise at
