Shaking the Gods

A short and powerful documentary about a strange ritual. Exceptional is the fact that all usual documentary information such as interviews and voice-over have been left out. All alone, the viewer has to take on the images of an excited crowd that seems to be shaking a religious object disrespectfully. It's an experiment for the maker and undoubtedly for the viewer too. The power of puzzlement.
