Divine Horsemen: The Living Gods of Haiti

Maya Deren's examination of Haitian voodoo rites is, according to Ruby Rich, “a film that conveys, perhaps for the first time, the power and beauty of voodoo free of both the false fantasies of Hollywood and the desensualized distance of ethnographers.” Filmed between 1947 and 1951, the footage was assembled after Deren's death by her husband, Teiji Ito.
