The Mirror of the Spirit

By Joao Meirinhos

The Mirror of the Spirit  by Joao MeirinhosA documentary on contemporary ayahuasca-related shamanic practices and ‘spiritual tourism’ in Peru is a classic example of a tale that grew in the telling, starting as a component in a Masters
degree thesis in Visual Anthropology and expanding to become a feature-length piece. Containing much observational handheld footage, it shows curanderos collecting the raw materials and preparing the ayahuasca brew, together with scenes from ceremonies and detailed informative interviews with the curanderos themselves and Western participants who have had their lives transformed by ayahuasca, and in some cases have remained in Peru to continue working with others.
