NMIFF welcomes the entry of a short documentary film “Afluentes” from UK, DIRECTED by João Meirinhos.

"'Afluentes' are small rivers or streams that flow towards a bigger river or lake.This documentary deals with the increase of 'spiritual tourists' in the Peruvian Amazon, neo-shamanism and the healing potential of traditional indigenous and/or mestizo plant medicine.
In this case, the 'bigger river or lake' symbolizes Ayahuasca - the psychedelic brew, the mysterious so called 'the vine of the dead' that brings together a teacher, a traveler and a desperate man to the same place."

Country:  UK
