EXcinema co-sponsoring with Northwest Film Forum presents Loa.
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.
