Like A Knife: The Real Voudou

Directors: Gigi Gatewood and Sunita Prasad - 40 Minutes Ghana 2016
This short documentary gets to the root of how traditional African spiritual and herbal practices have become stigmatized and marginalized. Scenes of ceremonies, herbal lessons and readings with spiritual leaders demystify Voudou and explore how realities of modern life are not incompatible with an intricate and intimate relationship with traditional spirituality.
