Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino

When: Thu., July 24, 7 p.m. 2014

In the tradition of non-narrative documentaries such as Koyaanisqatsi and Baraka, this film transports viewers to the heart of the Andes Mountains in Peru to bask in the spiritual traditions of the Paqos, a community of mystics. Filmed entirely on location, the film celebrates the Paqos' ecologically sensitive lifestyle, which is rooted in a "heart-based intelligence" and a symbiotic relationship with the natural world. The director, Jeffrey Wium, a Western-born Paqo who was initiated into the Altomisayoqs Holy Mountain Tradition following years of study, introduces the film in person and leads post-screening discussions. —Will Partin
