The Enemy God

Uploaded on Monday 1 January 2007


Here, in the Amazon jungle, where the spirit world and the natural world merge, Shake has reached the highest honor a Yanomamö shaman can attain. Traveling in the spirit to an enemy’s village to loose your demons upon them results in many deaths, and the reverence of your people. Shake has possession of many spirits, but the Spirit most feared by all Yanomamö is one they call Yai Wanonabälewä – The Enemy God.

Filmed in the rainforest of Central America using an indigenous cast, The Enemy God tells the true story of Bautista Cajicuwa, a former Yanomamö shaman, and the supernatural struggle for the survival of his people.
