The film, produced in 1969, records the vital fifth journey of the Huichol shaman Ramón Medina Silva as he leads a small band of novices to gather the sacred peyote at Wirikúta, the home of Huichol ancestor deities. The peyote cactus is essential to Huichol spirituality and cultural survival. The film has been widely acclaimed for its verity and sensitive treatment of the sacred pilgrimage.
