Synopsis

An intimate portrait of the world-renowned Mazatec curandera and her extensive use of Psilocybe mushrooms as a healing aid.

MUBI's take

Well before Cabeza de Vaca, Mexican director Nicolás Echevarría crafted this personal, ethnographic portrait of the eponymous curandera. With extensive psilocybin mushroom healing session and indebted to the beauty of the local landscape, Echevarría’s portrait is a loving tribute to Native religion.
