SHAMANISM: TRIBUTARIES OF THE BAIKAL

Preview of Stonedog's on-going film about Shamanism, which was inspired by Director Dasha Redkina's stay with a Siberian Shaman a few years ago. This film features, among others, an authoritative interview with Professor Keith Howard of the School of Oriental and African Studies, London (SOAS), who establishes Siberia as the root of Shamanism, and illuminates its extraordinary tracks across the globe. He also defines and dissects this ancient metaphysical practice, astutely establishes why it is a religion, and pinpoints its influences on the major religions. A leading expert in Shamanism, Prof. Howard offers deep insight into the survival of this religion, during and after the crushing Soviet years, its elastic adaptations, and its future prospects vis-a-via an ever-changing, material world and the pressures of tourism.

This film promises to be the most profound, objective survey of Shamanism every made.

*The train footage running through this promo was shot by Dasha Redkina during her first visit to Lake Baikal.
