Film: Real Voodoo
Film by Sandra M. Whiteley (52m, Haiti, Canada)
In January 2010 a few days after Haiti suffered a massive earthquake, evangelical leader Pat Robertson went on air to blame the devastation on Haitians' 'pact with the devil.' He was talking about Voodoo. Was he right? Is Voodoo evil? To find out what Voodoo is the film makers decided to make many trips to Haiti pre and post-earthquake filming Voodoo ceremonies in public places, sanctuaries, and in the homes of believers. The documentary is about their findings. It is not Pat Robertson's Voodoo, it is rather something else.
