Emmy award-winning Lynette Wallworth’s 360° VR experience connects you with an Amazonian people who are ascending from the edge of extinction.

Through a VR headset, you’ll be transported into the village where Hushahu, the first woman shaman of the Yawanawá will share her story with you. For the Yawanawá people, ‘medicine’ has the power to transport you in a vision to a place you have never been and here they use Virtual Reality as medicine, to open a portal to another way of knowing.

Awavena is a collaboration between a community and award-winning artist Lynette Wallworth, melding cutting edge technology and transcendent experience so that a vision can be shared, and a story can be told. Winner of the Emmy Award for Outstanding New Approaches to Documentary.
