Powerful
22 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I also liked Smoke Signals, but for an educational film, this was pretty edgy. Willing to address controversial issues. For example, up in Alaska, the whole issue of food. I was very impressed by this film. As a person from the dominant culture, I felt nurtured as a human being after seeing it, it fed my human spirit.

The Peruvian Shaman and the girl in Alaska were my favorite characters in the movie. I liked the fact that they mostly used non-actors, and I believe these two had no previous acting experience.

I just want to add that shamanism is alive and well, in New Age communities in the U.S. and Europe; in the Andes and Amazon; and from Siberia to Tibet and Vietnam (the Hmong). Spiritual healing is very powerful.
