    SYNOPSIS:

    This film documents the significant role of voodoo in Haitian culture from the perspectives of Voodoo priests, government officials, historians and politicians. Attacked by Western clerics and declared a “superstition” by law in 1935, voodoo has always been a source of empowerment for the average Haitian.
