Summary
Religion in Bali is marked by rituals of high artistry aimed at harmonizing the forces of darkness and light, as this program shows. Ancestor worship, karma, and other key concepts are illustrated through lavish, rare, high-definition footage of a cremation ceremony-considered a joyous prelude to reincarnation-a birth ceremony, a puberty rite, and a wedding. A priest explains the interplay between humans and the spirit world, with input from scholar Graeme MacRae; anthropologist Urs Ramseyer discusses the rites of the indigenous Bali Aga; and Gill Marais, on whose book this film is based, comments on the sacred trance-dances performed by young girls.
