Documentary Screening and Roundtable Discussion: Yagé is our Life
Join us to discuss the documentary "Yagé is Our Life", about the indigenous people of Putumayo, Colombia, their relationship with yagé and their perceptions of the commercialisation of their traditional medicine. The film will be presented by the invited guest Neil White, a member of Ancestral Seeds which produced the documentary. There will be a round-table discussion of the film from experts in indigeneity and visual culture from the School of Modern Languages and the Department of Anthropology at Durham University, as well as an expert in the therapeutic applications of ayahuasca (yagé) from California State University. There will be a short reception with light refreshments and drinks before the screening and an opportunity for discussion after the screening. All are welcome and there is no need to register.
The event is organised as part of the AHRC-funded Open World Research Initiative (OWRI) programme.
