Enchanted Forest (Car) & The Chibinda Brothers (Zambia)


Enchanted Forest: In the heart of Central Africa's equatorial forest, strange music merges from the dense jungle. They are the Baaka pygmies, who sing and dance to appeal to the spirits of hunting and honey gathering. Their life is a never-ending song that expresses their intense spirituality and their deep communion with the forest.

The Chibinda Brothers: In the village of Kashushu in Zambia, the Chibinda Brothers are approaching manhood.In the springtime, the Makishi demons, the spirits of the ancestors, come to kidnap the young village boys for four months. Wearing extraordinary masks, their dances enchant the crowd, and a new generation of men appears in the village.
