The Amazon, 1909. Shaman Karamakate, perhaps the last of his people, helps an ailing white explorer search for a sacred plant.
Thirty years later, believing that he has become a ghost of his former self, Karamakate agrees to join another explorer on a similar mission.
Combining adventure with beautiful black-and-white photography, sobering depictions of colonial misdeeds and a fascinating insight upon the worldview of endangered Amazonian civilizations, this Academy Award nominated drama is an unforgettable experience.
