Film Presentation:
Filmul prezinta formele actuale ale vechilor credinte populare în spirite, pe baza unor cercetari de antropologie culturala, folclor, psihologie, istorie si literatura, fara a interpreta fenomentul sau a emite judecati categorice. Spiritismul si activitatile oculte îsi au originea în America, dar au patruns în cultura rurala. Filmul trece dincolo de prezentarea faptica, explorând impactul culturii elitelor urbane si al culturii de masa asupra vechilor credinte rurale traditionale.
