Synopsis

For the Amazonian Yawanawa, ‘medicine’ transports you in a vision to a place you have never been. Hushahu, their first woman shaman, uses VR like medicine to open a portal to another way of knowing. A collaboration between a community and an artist, Awavena melds technology and transcendent experience to share a vision and a story of a people ascending.
