At dawn, goats leap about in a run-down graveyard while late-night dancers welcome the morning sun. In a remote Haitian village there is a dance with slaves and masters: the whipping zombie ritual. To trance-inducing music played by rara bands, men whip and fight until they die and are reborn in the infinite cycle. All Short films at IFFR 2017
