A skeptical anthropologist, Elijah, studies with a mysterious shaman, Santero. When an evil sorceress puts a curse on Elijah he is forced to reevaluate his beliefs.

The Shaman's Apprentice was featured at film festivals throughout the USA, and won the award for "Best Short Film" at the Castle Rock and Estes Park film festivals. Other awards included "Best Cinematography," and "Best Original Score." This film was made possible in part by a grant from the Charles and Lucile King Foundation.
