MARA’AKAME’S DREAM

DIR: FEDERICO CECCHETTI
HUICHOL | MEXICO
2016 | 90 MINS
(SUBTITLED)

This evocative portrait of Mexico follows Niere, a young Huichol Indian caught between his traditional culture and his youthful ambitions. On a trip to Mexico City with his father, a shaman (or Mara’akame) training his son in the art of spiritual healing, Niere only wants to perform with his rock band. But the young man’s dreams guide him down a more spiritual path of self-awakening, as the urban realities of city life blend with the mysticism of his people. Original title: El sueño del Mara´akame.

MARA’AKAME’S DREAM was awarded an OJO for First or Second Mexican Feature Film in 2016.
