A Tree is Like a Man (En la maloca de Don William)

Thorbjörg Jónsdóttir met ayahuasquero Don William by chance while traveling in the Colombian Amazon. This film serves as a personal witness to his lifetime relationship to ayahuasca and other medicinal plants that are native to the jungle. It’s a portrait that is at
once intimate and spare, opening up to alternate realities as dense as the jungle itself.
