About the documentary
Aurore Laurent said :
“Our purpose was to follow only one Shaman in his pratice, but during the recording, we understand that everyone has his own way to practice shamanism due to the different ethnic groups and heritage. That’s why we understand it would had been reducing telling only one history. Shamans people are usually erudites, poets or insane… We immediately decided to build the movie as a triptyque : 3 report on 3 states of shamanism in Nepal. We followed 3 ethnic groups during the documentary; Gurung, Tamang and Chepang, trying to show how various is this practice, according to ethnich, geographic and economic conditions. In the documentary are well-shown the differences between the first and most alive shamanism and the third more declined one.”
