An Evening with Dennis McKenna
and
Screening of the Film:

"The Shaman and the Scientist"

by Sarah Hutt

"The Shaman and The Scientist" is a short exploration of knowledge and scientific discovery, exploring the potential of indigenous plant-based medicine in the Amazon jungle from the perspective of Don Juan Tangoa Paima, a shaman who uses native plants and Ayahuasca to heal, and Dr. Dennis McKenna, an American ethnobotanist on a hunt to discover new medicines.

The evening will consist of documentary screening, as well as, presentations [both personal and scientific] on psychedelics, their therapeutic potential, and the art of storytelling for impact. Following an auditory journey curated by the multi-instrumentalist project, Xoobreak, we will transition into the LATE NIGHT gathering with local DJs, Otto and Tristan Dufrene, and special visiting musical guest, Halfred (Merkaba Music, Italy).
