Little Saints says
Little Saints is a documentary following six men and women from the United States who, along with Director Oliver Quintanilla, travel to Mexico to meet an extraordinary woman and take part of an ancient ritual of psychological and physical healing.

The ingestion of psilocybe mushrooms in the southern Mexico is an ancient, candlelit ritual, that transformed through out the years, and it is now performed with a mix of Catholic and Indigenous beliefs. The lack of external stimuli creates a space that is conducive to looking inside oneself. While guided by Mazatec shaman Natalia, the patients examine their issues and find answers within themselves; thru prayer and energy cleansing, the shaman purifies their spirits.

Along with their story, the film includes interviews with scientists and researchers who share their knowledge of psychedelic medicines, Mazatec traditions, and current efforts to bring this medicine to the world community.

Independent director/producer Oliver Quintanilla will introduce the film, give a short talk about his experiences with Mazatec Shamanism in Mexico, and provide an insight on the centuries old mushroom rituals as they are performed today. Following the movie there will be a conversation with the people in attendance.

Suggested donation: $15.00

* In order to be in tune with the wise Mazatec shamans we included a donation based ticket as well. NOTE: True Mazatec Shamans work on a donation basis. If a shaman in that region of Mexico asks for money up front, the recommendation would be to leave and find someone else.
