About the Movie
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 in an ancient ritual of psychological and physical healing. The ingestion of psilocybe mushrooms in southern Mexico is an ancient, candlelit ritual. 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; through prayer and energy cleansings, 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.
A unique look at a healing tradition for our time
I saw this movie in a special showing, as it was not widely released. It is very sad to me that the healing traditions of Mexico and other places has become a joke at best, and at worse, a crime. If you want this film, you will be able to see how a traditional healer works with mushrooms, insight, magic, and wisdom to show a healing path for a small group of people who are likely familiar to you.
Our planet is in trouble, an hurt humans are the cause of it. Little Saints shows us one way toward healing the troubles of humans today.
