A traditional San Bushmen trance dance at night in the Kalahari. As the dancing progresses we follow a healer as he enters trance. The film visualizes the spirit world into which he ascends and where he fights off evil threats to his community.
This film was made for Origins Centre at Wits University to illustrate the connection between hallucinations in trance and rock art. It shows in a space where the screen wraps around the visitor making them feel part of the experience.
