Video Overview

This film clip shows the young shaman (or guru in Thangmi) Jit Bahadur, the son of Rana Bahadur, beating his drum and going into trance to exorcise the malevolent spirits which have caused a young woman to be ill. The film was shot in complete darkness in an attempt to accurately illustrate the atmosphere of a shamanic seance.
