Synopsis
African cultural beliefs make up a key role in defining culture and ultimately
influencing human behavior. In the Zimbabwean Shona culture when an
adult dies, it is believed that his spirit takes the form of a homeless
spirit wandering about the cosmos. The deceased will only rest in peace
and transcend to become a legitimate ancestral spirit when his/her
relatives perform a special ritualistic cleansing ceremony. The
cleansing ceremony will result in the dead spirit taking up the role of
protector to the living relatives as part of the protective ancestral
community. The film follows this ceremonial cleansing practice through
the lens of one of the few families who still adhere to this belief as
passed down from one generation to the other.
Theme A documentary
on Anthropology, Ethnology and ethno historic influences on traditional
cultural practices of the Zimbabwean Shona people.
