Equator 360°: The Centre of The World

Nicolas Jolliet

The shamans of Yuruparí live directly on the equator, in the Amazonian forests in south-eastern Colombia. Their sacred sites are spread out in a network placed exactly on the equatorial line. The Yuruparí believe they live at the centre of the world, and that it is their duty to preserve the balance of the planet through their spiritual work.

In collaboration with ASN Bank, we are showing this and two other VR films on the theme of climate change, free of charge on the square in front of Theater aan het Spui.
