Eye of the Needle: An Ayahuasca Journey (2012)
A visually striking exploration into the Peruvian Amazon and further into the depths of human consciousness. For thousands of years, the Ayahuasca brew has been used by indigenous tribes as a medicine, a therapy and a gateway beyond this world. The active ingredient is DMT (Dimethyltryptamine), which induces intense, occasionally nightmarish hallucinations lasting for up to 12 hours.
Guided by shamans, a person enters the eye of the needle – and faces visions of absolute truth, his demons, his fear, his loved ones – to emerge enlightened and reborn.
