The Healing Plants is a documentary series about the indigenous ethnobotany, to understand the diverse flora that the Shipibo-Konibo people from the Peruvian rainforest, have long used and protected.
Since 2020, the pandemic has severely affected the indigenous communities and the elders started to disappear. The transmission of knowledge about biodiversity was compromised and disrupted. This series is about raising awareness and educating on their connection with Amazonian plants through images about the indigenous' oneiric world and their sensitive connection with the forest.
For today, their connection and consciousness linked to biodiversity is in danger of disappearing.
