Grassi Leipzig Ethnography Museum Film Evening: Sachamama by Johannes Orthmayr

On June 3oth the Grassi Leipzig Ethnography Museum is showing the documentary film Sachamama by Johannes Orthmayr.

Sachamama is an Ethnobotanical Center in the Peruvian rain-forest near Iquitos.

Established by Francisco Montes, a Peruvian shaman of Capanahua ancestry, Sachamama  allows visitors an insight into the rituals and tradition of the Amazonian shaman as well as the plants who inhabit the rain-forest.

Especially the psychoactive Ayahuasca.

Director Johannes Orthmayr met Francisco Montes in 2008 and in 2009 made a documentary about the shaman, his centre and their work

The film evening is hosted by Dr. Iris Edenheiser and Johannes Orthmayr will be present for a question and answer session after the viewing.
