Storyline

Curtis, an American man looking for an escape to nature, joins his estranged Brazilian biologist brother Francis on a spontaneous journey to find a rare beetle in the Amazon. While hiking, Curtis is bitten by a snake. As he enters a hallucinogenic state from the venom, the two brothers are captured as slaves by a tribe of Amazonian women. Under the control of a princess slave-master Osimao, Curtis enters a matriarchal society where women prepare to cannibalize Francis and turn Curtis into a sex-slave-warrior. In confinement, Curtis befriends Cobrao, another male slave. Together they plot the rescue of Francis, and their own escape. Written by Anonymous

Excellent Indie
17 February 2014 | by russellbabymovieSee all my reviews

Very cool indie film shot gorgeously in the Jungles of Brazil. A surreal, magical film in a magical location. What made it for me were the quality of performances and the direction. Schiffer(director)is a professional and knows his cinema. His authorial directing style is stamped on the film. Transmigration is definitely worth a watch. It starts in the United States and works it way deeper and deeper into the jungle until the lead, Curtis, played to the nines by unknown but extremely talented actor, Andrew Treglia gets caught by a tribe of Amazonian women. But this isn't a hot Brazilian sex film, this is real cinema.
