Project Main Details

Experience BWITI Renascence of the Healed 
This is a documentary on the Gabonese traditional Bwiti ceremony in which a plant called Iboga is used. The footage was filmed in 2004 for a documentary called 'Ibogaine- Rite of Passage'. Years later, and with the growing issues of sustainability around iboga in Gabon due to an increasing demand in the West for the treatment of drug dependency, we edited a 40-minute documentary with the footage shot in Gabon, focussed on the cultural richness and importance of the Bwiti practice. The idea is also to screen the film on national TV in Gabon to create awareness also locally about this practice, since there is a lot of stigma and marginalization of Bwiti. The film with English voice over can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/167277956/ccfb331890. We need a French voice over for the film.

Script Details

Ceci est une hutte rituelle dans un petit village du Gabon, en Afrique Centale. Ce soir marque la fin d'une longue période de préparation et le début d'une cérémonie sacrée qui va durer 3 jours et 3 nuits.
La mère spirituelle de cette cérémonie est une femme expérimentée qui va introduire la nouvelle membre dans le culte féminin de Mabandji. Ella va diriger un groupe de six femmes déjà initiées qui vont guider la novice, appelée la “Bandji.”
Lors de cette cérémonie, tout le village prend part. Les hommes jouent de la harpe Ngombi et du Ngongo en bois.
La mère de l'initiation appelle les esprits en sifflant dans une cartouche vide afin de créer un sifflement fort et aigu.
La novice, la Bandji s'assoit sur les genoux des femmes guides comme une enfant.
Il est attendu qu'elle voyage dans l'au-délà pour mourir et ensuite naître à nouveau.
