About

Seattle premiere!

Co-presented with Ex-Cinema.

From documentary filmmaker Georg Koszulinski comes a visual chronicle of the Vodou religion as practiced in the rural mountains of Haiti. Loa presents an expressive account of rural Vodou via a portrait of the houngan Extanta Aoleé, who has served the Loa, or sacred spirits of Haiti, for over a half century. Koszulinski’s film employs affective elements of documentary practice—Loa features an original ambient-drone soundscape and meditative editing techniques to offer an ethnographic experience more representative of the work of Nathaniel Dorsky than Robert Gardner.
