Numen is a documentary film focusing on the healing power of plants and the natural world, and calls for a re-awakening of traditional knowledge about plants and their uses.
The documentary offers an introduction into whole plant medicine, ecological medicine, environmental toxins, the limits of conventional medicine, and healing.
Numen sets out to encourage viewers to think deeply about the sources of their medicine and how their healthcare choices affect themselves and the larger web of life.
The film looks at conventional healthcare, the dangers of environmental toxins and a vision for sustainable medicine. Featuring interviews with herbalists, doctors and people who have turned their own health and wellbeing around using natural medicine, Lumen serves as a reminder of the healing power of plants.
Numen is available to rent online and to buy on DVD from the film’s website.
