Plot Synopsis:

In Iquitos, gateway to the Peruvian Amazon, Nexy (Silvia Chávez) lives on the margins, sometimes as a sex worker, haunted by the memories and folklore of her rural childhood. She meets Miguel (Johnny Palacios), a sociologist visiting from Lima, studying the spiritual traditions and socioeconomic disparities of the region. Nexy consults a curandero (Melitón Delgado), who suggests she participate in a healing ceremony. Together, they travel into the jungle, to deepen the healing in a natural environment. When Nexy vanishes, both Miguel and Melitón seek guidance from ayahuasca, and experience profound revelations while in the embrace of the medicine. Restored in 2018 in cooperation with the Perú Ministry of Culture, The Wind of Ayahuasca (El viento del ayahuasca, 1983) was the first film to offer an authentic and honest depiction of an ayahuasca healing ceremony (performed by Delgado, an actual ayahuasquero who served as technical advisor on the film, with his mother Alicia Vda. de Delgado).
