The new film Aya: Awakenings goes inside the world of ayahuasca, exploring the shamanic resurgence and ayahuasca movement in Peru and around the world. With trippy visuals, jungle sounds and more, the movie attempts to capture the experience of taking the hallucinogenic substance. The movie also explores the ayahuasca tourism industry in the rainforests of South America, where the vine that’s the source of ayahuasca grows. Directed by Timothy Parish, the movie has its L.A. premiere tomorrow evening at The Source in Venice. We spoke with Aya: Awakenings writer/producer Rak Razam about the film.
