This visual meditation takes a look at the sacred power of peyote. The film can be seen as an anthropological study of a traditional ritual, or it can be viewed from a naturalistic point of view that is focused on entering into an image in order to analyze and penetrate it. We must force our eyes to unlearn traditional ways of seeing.

“Ciguri 98 takes the ritual music from Ciguri 96 and adds the voice of Jean Rouch reciting Antonin Artaud’s text ‘The Peyote Dance.’ The camera shows the last peyote shaman, a trance state, and secret healing rituals.” Raymonde Carasco
