Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti


divinehorseman_cover

A 1950s capture of voodoo rituals in Haiti, created by Maya Deren, an experimental filmmaker. Because she was an initiate of voodoo, this film became an influential work of visual anthropology. It’s value to me is in its rare portrayal of voodoo practice prior to becoming well known outside of Haiti.
