Ritual spirit possession in the Mina Nago

This application explores the possibilities offered by multimedia technology in the ethnographic description and analysis of ritual activity. The main principle that has guided this experiment is the methodological advantages resulting from the juxtaposition of audio-visual documents and text, as opposed to the conventional cinematographic narrative and argumentative strategies used in the documentary genre. The substantive focus of this application deals with religious performance in the Tambor de Mina of north Brazil.
