 SYNOPSIS 

"It is very commonly experienced by the people who come here [in the jungle] to realize 'I thought it was gonna be about ayahuasca'...but it's about the songs".                                 Dr. Joe Tafur

 

THE SONG THAT CALLS YOU HOME

 

is a personal, scientific and mystical exploration of Amazonian curanderismo - with focus on Ayahuasca and Master Plants, their healing and visionary properties and risks - along with the wondrous world of the Shipibo people and Song.

This film aims to function as a bridge for those seeking to understand the facts and dynamics behind one of the most intriguing phenomena of our time: Ayahuasca Tourism -

Westerners who travel to the Amazon each year by the thousands in pursuit of healing and enlightenment through Ayahuasca, shamanic treatments, and specific plant diets.

In recent years the use of Ayahuasca has become widely known, however, there is not much information about other rainforest Master Plants that have medicinal qualities and capacity to bring about profound healing and transformation.

In this film we explore the realm of Amazonian plants and the Shipibo traditional way of establishing a connection with the spirit through diet and ceremony.

By documenting the journey of a few seekers into the jungle of Peru and into a traditional Shipibo Ayahuasca ceremony, we bring insight and understanding of their process of discovery as it takes place. 

 
 

At the same time we present the perspective of Shipibo shamans, apprentices, Western doctors, scientists and lawyers, offering a thorough vision of what it entails to work with this medicine and how to integrate the experience and teachings into everyday life.
