Vincent Moon & Priscilla Telmon: HÍBRIDOS

The Spirits of Brazil

Immerse yourself in the spiritual rituals of Brazil – from the Afro-Brazilian ceremonies of Candomblé in Bahia to indigenous ancestral rituals in Acre – in this site-specific film installation.

French filmmakers Vincent Moon and Priscilla Telmon have spent the last three years travelling and documenting over sixty different spiritual ceremonies, across the vast South American country. The result is an experimental and immersive audiovisual collection running on a 24 hour loop, that showcases an incredible array of cultural diversity and constantly evolving ritualistic forms. The film work, with its intense musical sequences, gives a rare glimpse into both ancient and modern spiritual observances, revealing the deepest expressions of the Brazilian soul.

Moon worked as the main director of the 'Take Away Shows' of La Blogothèque, which featured the likes of R.E.M and Arcade Fire. Now he travels the world making ethnographic-experimental films. Telmon has dedicated herself to long trips combining history and adventure, paying homage to the wisdom, tradition and mystery of the cultures she's visited through words, pictures, audio and films.
