Published Conibo Productions, 2016
[San Francisco, California, USA] : Kanopy Streaming, 2019


Description 1 online resource (streaming video file) (91 minutes): .flv file, sound
Summary This **New York Times Critic's Pick** is a visually inventive and hypnotic portrait of a little-seen world, punctuated by truly trippy depictions of ceremonial splendor. ICAROS follows an American woman to the Amazon where she searches for a medical miracle. Her treatment options exhausted, she finds a young ayahuasca shaman who is losing his eyesight and learns instead to confront her 'susto' -- the disease of fear. Nominated for Best International Narrative Feature at the **Tribeca Film Festival** and winner of a Special Jury Prize for Artistic Accomplishment at the **Crested Butte Film Festival**. *"ICAROS is a mini-epic of serene, intelligent mind-body wooziness." - Robert Abele, **Los Angeles Times*** *"The hallucinatory power of ayahuasca and the incantatory lure of rituals fuse with existential dread in this darkly hypnotic drama." - Richard Brody, **New Yorker***
