Whereas the label of «pilgrim» is still mostly associated with devout persons leaving home for purely religious motives, young people taking to the road as «backpackers» are generally perceived as pleasure seeking globetrotters. Questioning these stereotypes, anthropologist and filmmaker Tommi Mendel followed one young woman along the Way of St. James through France and Spain and another one along backpacking-routes through Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. Documenting their experiences and encounters over a period of three years, this film reveals intriguing parallels on various levels between what at first glance appear as two different ways of travelling. Common Roads is Tommi Mendel’s PhD-thesis accepted by the University of Zurich. It was supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation.

“Afluentes” are small rivers or streams that flow towards a bigger river or lake which, in this case, symbolize Ayahuasca. An ancient psychedelic brew that changes peoples’ perception and brought together, in this film, a teacher, a traveller and a desperate man to the same place. This documentary focuses on the increase of spiritual tourists in the Peruvian amazon, modern shamanism and the healing potentials of traditional plant medicine.
