This is a riveting film about the sacred traditions of Bali. If you have enjoyed the articles we featured on the island in this issue of Hoop this film gives you the chance to see some of them enacted.

The film is the result of the director's long love affair with the island, which began in 1970 when he went to a remote village and became the first Westerner to live there, participating in temple ceremonies and learning to play the gamelan. Wiese recalls that `the longer he stayed, the more he realised that he was not really `seeing' the world where the Balinese lived.'

Returning to the island many times again during his life, the film finally got born, and follows his travels as he meets healers, ceremonialists and traditional Balinese artists, interviewing them and filming them as they perform both arts and ceremonies. Central to the film is the concept of trance - of letting the spirits through, whether in the shadow puppet performance, the masked dances, or during a healing.

I found some of the film's sound a little difficult at times - some interviews were filmed in big rooms with reverberation - and also found some of the English spoken by the Balinese being interviewed a little hard to follow here and there, but there are subtitles when things get too indecipherable. Visually the film is beautiful, and that and the fascinating information it contains make up more than adequately for any `boomy' location problems. Compulsive and thought-provoking viewing.
