Cultural Embassy shows a collection of Shipibo fabrics from Peru, brought by one of the guests of the Lloyd Hotel. The exhibition is on the public platforms and in the entrance of the Lloyd Hotel. The Shipibo-Konibo people live along the Ucayali River in the Peruvian Amazon watershed in the river and are known for handicrafts such as intricate embroidery.
In relation to this exhibition the film 'Shipibo-Konibo' will be shown. Shipibo-Konibo - by Willem Malten, narration by Gene Hackman - is a journey into the heart of the Amazonian rain forest - but also a methaphorical journey, an exploration of Shamanic states of mind. Shipibo-Konibo is about the narrow passage between the mind and the forest, the male and female, the profane and the sacred, the raw and the cooked. It is about the meeting between 'us' and 'them', a realization of innocence and loss of it - and yet, finding unexpected hope for humankind.
Shipibo Konibo will be shown on Monday 14 August at 21.00 hrs, Restaurant Snel in the Lloyd Hotel, Oostelijke Handelskade 34. Admission is free.Terug
