Summary
The elaborate rituals and timeless pageantry of Bali make the island unforgettable for visitors, yet few really understand what lies behind the dances, the costumes, and the ceremonies. With gorgeous, high-definition footage this program delves into the spiritual beliefs at the heart of Balinese traditions. Viewers observe the powerful Barong dance, in which participants fall into a trance and are later revived by mantras, and witness a frenetic invocation of the goddess of death not performed for tourists. In addition, the video documents the four months of preparation leading up to a spectacular cremation ceremony for three members of the royal family of Ubud, including the man known as Bali's Last King.
