synopsis

This ethnographic documentary applies the perspectives of Western and traditional medicine to the exploration of the African N'Doep ritual practiced in Senegal for the purpose of healing mental disorders. Although the guide in the film is a French psychiatrist, the overall mood is decolonial as it acknowledges the importance of the local healing traditions and the need to connect Western medicine with indigenous religious rituals.
