For the Amazonian Yawanawa, ‘medicine’ has the power to travel you in a vision to a place you have never been. Hushahu, the first woman shaman of the Yawanawa uses VR like medicine to open a portal to another way of knowing. This stunning VR experience, directed by the legendary Australian artist Lynette Wallworth, follows her Emmy Award-winning VR film “Collisions.”

Awavena is made at the invitation of, and in intimate collaboration with, the Yawanawa people during a time of both peril and potential for people, their forest and the connected ecosystem that drive the planet. This VR experience is a gift from them to those who will virtually visit their forest and receive this transmission - a gift that can shift our consciousness and change the decisions we make. Chief Tashka Yawanawa says: "This film is our people sending a message to the world. The message is that we feel, as human beings, we are part of nature and everybody one day will come back to nature."

An official selection of Sundance and Venice Film Festivals, Awavena was featured at the World Economic Forum, Davos, and a host of other distinguished festivals and venues.

(Awavena) takes you on an Ayahuasca journey to the Amazon… (it) expands the boundaries of what immersive video can do.” - VIce

“It’s clear that Wallworth has produced one of the first VR masterpieces.” - The Sydney Morning Herald

Q: Why is there no audio or 360 video playback after the book opens during the introduction?
A: As of Windows 10, Microsoft has depreciated built-in support for h.265 video playback. Please download "HEVC Video Extensions from Device Manufacturer" or if this is unavailable, you may have to download the standard "HEVC Video Extensions from Device Manufacturer" on the Microsoft store.
