New York premiere of a unique film presented with The Assemblage along with an immersive shaman-led experience. The tribe of Amazônia Paiter Surui had no contact with white people until 1969. Since then modernity has encroached, with smartphones, electricity, gas, inoculations, guns, and Facebook replacing traditional forms of life. In the midst of this new world, an ex-shaman who was forced into evangelical Christianity struggles to heal the suffering people of his village, and faces the wrath of spirits of the forest, who are angered that he has abandoned them. Presented with The Assemblage The Rubin is pleased to offer audio support with "Listen Everywhere," a free app for audio streaming at our theater programs. You can download "Listen Everywhere" for free on your personal smartphone, or borrow an audio listening device from the Museum.
