I have seen the Jan Kounen's movie on shamanism among the Shipibo-Konibo and I find it is an excellent picture. Not only has he presented their world in a very wholesome way but his own comments on his motivations and ceremonies indicate a special sensitivity towards the whole argument and show what kind of a person he is. Additionally I find presenting the comments of the experts is very helpful to outsiders learning or researching on the matter. The overall presentation of the Shipibo world indicate a person who has approached the argument and experience with respect and in a knowledgeable way.
I congratulate the filmmaker on his film. I work with the Shipibo-Konibo and they are family to me now, and the respect for their practices is totally shown here.
A wonderful film everyone should see to learn more about the world's enriching diversity and themselves.
Gongratulations. I am looking forward to his next film on the topic. or any related one.
