A short film by director Vincent Moon entitled “Justina”.

Shot in May 2013, he writes:

A little village not far from Pucallpa, in the heart of the peruvian Amazon. It’s complete darkness inside the maloca, where the ritual is happening once more. Justina, after singing all night long her icaros, the shipibo chants, suddenly suffocates. She has been healing various patients through the power of the most sacred of all plants.

A traditional Shipibo ceremony of Ayahuasca, and a portrait of a great maestra and her relationship with the forest.
