the fascinating world of the Voudoun religion, whose devotees commune
with the cosmic powers through invocation, offerings, song and dance.
The Voudoun pantheon of deities, or loa, is witnessed as being living
gods and goddesses, actually taking possession of their devotees. The
soundtrack conveys the incantatory power of the ritual drumming and
singing.

"Maya Deren first went to Haiti as an artist . . . but the manifestations
of rapture that seized her, and transported her beyond the bounds of
any art she had ever known."

— Joseph Campbell
