Icaros: A Vision

Jun 22, 2017

Date: Thursday, June 29, 7:20 p.m., $11
Location: The Screen, Santa Fe University of Art and Design, 1600 St. Michael’s Drive, Santa Fe

A special screening co-sponsored by SAR, followed by a conversation with the film’s producer, co-writer, and anthropologist Abou Farman and School for Advanced Research President Michael Brown, who has written several books about the Peruvian Amazon and shamanism.

A portion of the ticket sales will benefit SAR.

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. Set in an actual ayahuasca retreat, the film surrounds its fictional patients with real Shipibo shamans and support staff.

Work of beguiling grace…dramatized with almost trancelike beauty and never less than transfixing.
—Nick Schager, Variety

Mesmerising!
—Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

“[The filmmakers portray the film’s] surroundings with an ecstatic stillness, and they capture the medicinally induced hallucinations with a visual imagination of rare specificity and fury.”
—Richard Brody, The New Yorker
