A film is making its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival and I thought I’d give you the heads up because I thought some of you might find it interesting. The film is “Icaros: A Vision” and it’s directed by Leonor Caraballo and Matteo Norzi and stars Ana Cecilia Stieglitz, Filippo Timi, and Arturo Izquierdo. Here’s a synopsis:
Looking for a miracle, Angelina (Ana Cecilia Stieglitz) 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 (Arturo Izquierdo), 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.
