FILM: The Shaman’s Apprentice (2001)

This film is a part of the series "Biocultural Diversity: A Film Journey."

The Shaman’s Apprentice presents a vivid account of Mark Plotkin’s adventures in ethnobotany in Amazonia and is known as one of the most stunning rainforest films ever made. This film takes us “through the emerald door” into the realm of shamans and reveals the richness of the medicinal lore which is the inheritance of the tribes of the Northeast Amazon. The future of such knowledge is uncertain, as such cultures are as endangered as the forest around them.
