Giancarlo's Recommendation

When I first watched Icaros I loved it immediately, it was the first film on Ayahuasca that gives you a visceral sense of what it means to ingest the jungle cocktail. Also, it helps to know that one of the characters is based on the co-director and co-writer who discovered she had cancer whilst they were shooting and died in 2015 before the movie had been finished.

Looking for a miracle, Angelina lands at a healing center in the Peruvian Amazon where shamans minister to a group of foreign psychonauts seeking transcendence, companionship, and the secrets of life and death. Her perceptions altered by the ancient psychedelic plant known as ayahuasca, she bonds with Arturo, a young indigenous shaman who is losing his eyesight. In their hallucinogenic journeys together they attain a different sense of their destinies. She learns to accept her fears while Arturo, in turn, realizes that he will be able to see in the dark and sing his ceremonial healing songs, the icaros
