Icaros: A Vision
DIRECTOR: LEONOR CARABALLO AND MATTEO NORZI
CAST: ANA CECILIA STIEGLITZ, FILIPPO TIMI, ARTURO IZQUIERDO
This elliptical, intoxicating, and utterly unclassifiable film begins with a pilgrimage to the Peruvian Amazon by an American woman (Ana Cecilia Stieglitz) hoping to be treated for an unspecified illness by Shipibo shamans using the ayahuasca plant, which induces thrilling hallucinations, heightening the sounds and visions of the pulsating, riotous life that is everywhere in the jungle. Icaros: A Vision drifts freely between real and dreamed life, bursting with indelible images from co-directors Matteo Norzi and Leonor Caraballo. The film is based on Caraballo’s own journey. She succumbed to cancer before it was complete.
