Gods and Satans

Alternative title
Dieux et Satans
Synopsis
Among the Wana people, semi-nomads from the Indonesian forest of Sulawesi, Indo Pino is a shaman recognized by everybody. Her nephew, who is also a shaman’s son, converted to Christianity and is now preaching his visions. For him, if the visions come from God, the visions of his aunt inevitably must come from Satan. This film explores how the whole basis of the ancestral culture of these people comes under attack when Judeo-Christian concepts threaten to turn concepts of good and evil upside down.
