A unique film set in the Amazon jungle of Colombia in two time periods, early and mid 20th century. It’s a film someone like Werner Herzog might make and that is high praise. Through the journey of a shaman in both timelines, as a young man and a wiser older one, whose tribe is going extinct the film shines a light at cultures few have ever heard of. It’s a tragedy that so many of those have existed and got decimated -by progress, disease, rubber barons or Christianity- without anyone noticing. Filmed in black and white the film really looks and feels timeless. It could have been filmed in the 30’s or 60’s instead of the 21st century.
