New York Premiere 

Join Mokan Rono on a journey in the Peruvian Amazon to uncover the ancestral history and meaning of ayahuasca, a psychoactive brew used by Shipibo shamans. This meditative film delves deep into the lives of Shipibo indigenous people, who have lived for over two thousand years on the banks of Ucayali River in Peru and now carry many of their oldest traditions into the 21st century. On his journey, Mokan is mentored by his mother, a master healer as well as a local shaman. He finds himself immersed in the most deeply-held principles of Shipibo philosophy: there is a gap between the physical and spiritual worlds that can observed and all living creatures carry spirits.

Created entirely by members of the Kechwa-Lamista native community of Chirigyako, in the Peruvian Amazon, as part of the Indigenous Amazonian Video Project, Earth’s Children follows a group of kids as they go about their day: picking bananas for breakfast, singing as they walk to their farm, working on the land, and playing at hunting.
