WHAT WE THOUGHT

Alberto Villoldo has studied the shamanic healing practices of the Amazon for over 25 years. In this beautifully filmed documentary he reveals secrets of the jungle’s sacred plants and the healers who administer them, deep in the Amazon rainforest. The master shamans of Peru’s Madre de Dios River show us how to heal the world with sacred plants in “Amazonia”. For a rather stretched seventy minutes, the audience is exposed to a bunch of talking heads discussing the healthcare wonders of the Amazon.

These sorts of DVDs have a built-in audience and you’ve made yourself aware here. It’s just that the audience is so fickle to these sort of natural messages and I can see a lot of readers getting annoyed at short the overall narrative happens to be.

The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is pretty sharp, but it lacks any substantial punch-up. The transfer is better than expected, but there is no audio in the back channels. But, that’s to be expected with a documentary of this nature. I’d recommend a purchase for the New Age inclined among the readership.
