The Secret Life of Mushrooms
Some see them as a sacred part of ancient Mazatec ritual. To others, they're a powerful mind-altering drug. The Secret Life of Mushrooms takes us on a psychedelic journey to Huautla de Jimenez, Mexico to explore the effect of R. Gordon Wasson's exposure to Mazatec curandero rituals, the resulting recreational popularization of mushrooms and the long term effects of narco-tourism on an ancient way of life.
