SCHAMANEN IM BLINDEN LAND - SHAMANS OF THE BLIND COUNTRY

 

SCHAMANEN IM BLINDEN LAND
1978-1980


Director: Michael Oppitz

Shamans of the Blind Country is an epic documentary on faith healing in a remote region of North West Nepal. Over a period of eighteen months the film follows the basic traits of a local religious practice, kindred in spirit to the many variations of the great inner-Asian tradition of shamanism characteristic for the Siberian part of Northern Asia and the entire Himalayan region. Part I pursues the various types of healing rituals enacted by the shamans of the northern Magar of the Dhaulagiri region (in North West Nepal) for the benefi t of their clients. Part II of the film is focussed mainly on the transmission of shamanic knowledge from master to pupil. This is a long process of increasing intensity.
