“Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino” to Debut in Santa Fe and Taos
"Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino," an inspirational, emotionally intimate documentary exploring the spirituality and heart-centered, celestially-guided life ways of the Altomisayoqs of the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition of Peru will debut in Santa Fe and Taos April 23-26, 2014.
Filmed entirely on location in the high mountains of Peru, this unprecedented motion picture takes viewers on a journey into the heart of an ancient earthkeeping culture, one of our planet's last remaining uninterrupted indigenous wisdom lineages, to discover a way of life both practical and mystical. It presents universally applicable insights into a state of being based on loving kindness, Unconditional reciprocity, sustainability and the sanctity of daily life.
Like the groundbreaking films "Koyaanisqatsi" and "Baraka," "Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino" is non-narrated. Viewers receive a direct, unmediated experience of living with the Altomisayoqs (or Paqos) of the high Andes, witnessing their heart-based intelligence and being touched by their active, reciprocal relationships with the conscious life force of the natural world.
The experience is energetic, powerful, immensely moving and visually stunning.
"Wisdomkeepers, Paqo Andino" will be presented in Taos for one screening only, at 7:00 pm Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at the Taos Center for the Arts. Tickets are $10 in advance and at the door. Advance tickets can be reserved in person or by calling the TCA Boxoffice at 758-2052.
The film will screen for three nights in Santa Fe, at 6:00 pm on April 24-25 at BODY of Santa Fe, and 7:00 pm April 26 at the Sun Room at Santa Fe Soul. Tickets are $15 in advance (http://www.paqoandino.com/2014-schedule/) or $20 at the door on the night of the event.
Filmmaker Jeffrey Wium, a Western-born Paqo initiated in the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition following years of study in Peru, will be on hand to introduce the film and lead a post-screening program and discussion.
