Tonkiri – Chapter One (movie)

Film makers Jim Sunday and Andre Clement wandered into Mayantuyacu some years ago wanting to make a short film on Amazonian shamanism. They found themselves swept up into a story of pilgrimage and apprenticeship instead. At long last, their first chapter of cinematographic poetry, Tonkiri, has been released! Tonkiri is the Ashaninkan word for hummingbird. Chapter One introduces the Ashaninkan plant healer Juan Flores from Peru and tells the story of his journey to Canada.
