AYA: Awakenings is a narrative documentary into the world and visions of Amazonian shamanism, exploring the indigenous experience with plant sacraments including ayahuasca and DMT and the Western uptake of them. By blending narration directly from the cult book Aya: A Shamanic Odyssey with video footage, interviews with practicing curanderos and Western Shamans, samples of traditional icaros or magic songs, photographs and cutting edge special effects, Aya: Awakenings reproduces the inner landscape of the visionary state in unprecedented detail, invoking a spiritual awakening in the viewer. Featuring the artwork of Pablo Amaringo, Andy Debrenardi and more; directed by Tim Parish, video editing by Verb Studios, soundscapes by DJ Buttons Touching and music by Shpongle, Tipper, Darpan, Lula Cruz and curanderos Norma Panduro, Guillermo Arevalo, Percy Garcia Lozano, Ron Wheelock and Kevin Furnas, this documentary charts the Global Shamanic Resurgence born in the jungles of Peru and reaching out to embrace the world.
