Vodoun Gods On The Slave Coast

Vodoun Gods On The Slave Coast explores ceremony, sacred dance and ritual in Benin, the birthplace of Vodoun (Vodoo). Formerly known as Dahomey, Benin was also called the Slave Coast due to its importance in the trans-Atlantic slave trade from the 16th to the 19th centuries. Today, the worship of Vodoun gods remains integral to everyday life in Benin. Shot in January 2011 during the country's annual Vodoun celebrations, this film offers an impressionistic glimpse of the major ceremonies associated with this ancient religion. Sublime Frequencies
