Mara'Akame's Dream

Schedule

Thursday, Nov. 10 at 7:00pm

Nieri is a young Huichol indian whose dream of traveling with his rock band to play in a concert in Mexico City faces stern opposition by his father. A shaman, or Mara’Akame, he has considerably different plans for his son, who’s expected to follow in his footsteps and learn the Huichol culture’s tradition of spiritual healing. To become a Mara’Akame, Nieri must first find the elusive Blue Deer in his dreams, and in a strangely appropriate paradox, it’s only when Nieri becomes hopelessly lost in Mexico City that he finally finds his vision.
