"The film Wine of the Souls follows six foreigners along their paths in search of healing, self-discovery and mystical experiences. They embark on a pilgrimage to the Amazonian Rainforest, the birthplace of the Santo Daime Religion." -- Camera Viva
The brew ayahuasca, which means "vine of the dead", and which is also known as "the wine of the souls", has been used since time immemorial by the shamans of the Amazon to enter into contact with their ancestors, to see into the future, and to cure illness, among other things. Its exact origins are unknown. In Brazil, the Church of Santo Daime uses ayahuasca under the name of Daime in its ceremonies.
This religion unites CHristian faith with shamanic wisdom. Every year, groups of foreigners embark on a pilgrimage for the remote villiage of Ceu do Jurua, in the Amazonian Rainforest, a journey of three days by boat and four hours walking from the closest city. Once there, they participate in the ritual "feitio" (preparation) of the sacramental brew, the everyday life of teh community and the many religious ceremonies of the Santo Daime. Founded in 1930 by a grandson of slaves, Mestre Raimundo Irineu Serra, the doctrine of the Amazonian Rainforest is now being shared with the whole world.
