BAILANDO CON LA MUERTE
SHORT FILM, 2015
Bailando con la Muerte is a short film that lays somewhere between a documentary and an installation piece.
This piece features an interview with shaman Pedro Brock Lopez on topics such as Peruvian culture, death and dying, ayahuasca ceremonies, the existence of the soul, the process of becoming and responsibilities of a shaman and in a larger sense, his reflections on life itself. Originally designed to be screened on four monitors with the viewer in the middle, it has been adapted for online presentation.
Bailando con la Muerte was filmed in Perú in 2014 over a space of three months in locations such as Lima, Huaraz, Pastoruri, Rio Huallaga and the Amazon jungle surrounding Lagunas and Pucallpa.
