‘Dance to the Spirits’ is a creative documentary shot in Nsola, an Evuzok village in the Cameroon jungle. To his habitants there are two kinds of diseases: the natural ones and the ones caused by sorcery. This is the story of Mba Owona Pierre, the healer who handles the sicknesses coming from the night world. The dance to the spirits is his most important healing ritual. We see him in his daily life, practicing his treatments and writing down his thoughts about modernity, religion or medicine. Weve got the portrait of an extraordinary character and a tribute to Evuzok culture.
