Spotted on RealitySandwich.com, this clip from an upcoming documentary looks really interesting.
Real deal jungle physicians. I've communicated with Dennis McKenna a couple of times and found him to be very nice and very erudite.
From the film's Kickstarter page:
"Can we afford to let undiscovered and underutilized medicinal plants not only go unnoticed, but possibly disappear forever.
Cultivating a Cure is a one-hour documentary that looks to answer this question by following the progress of native healers, scientists, and researchers all working with traditional plant-based medicines in and around the Amazonian town of Iquitos, Peru."
I look forward to the final film.
