Rites of winter, rites of peyote. A creative documentary based on texts by Antonin Artaud read by Jean Rouch, and the words of the last shaman’s peyote, translated by Raymonde Carasco.

MUBI's take

Artists and ethnographers have long been fascinated by the social role and mind-altering effects of the hallucinogenic drug peyote, and few more than Antonin Artaud and Jean Rouch. Using their audio-visual material, this rhythmic documentary offers a fascinating glimpse into the sacred ritual.
