THE PROJECT

A documentary about shamans, death and better life.

When we left for Japan in the Summer 2012, we began our journey a little unprepared, without actually knowing what we would have found; to be completely true, we didn’t quite know what to look for. We just had one certainty: we were going to meet a blind shaman, a shaman who speaks with the dead. An itako.
She is the reason we travel across the world, her promise of a meeting with something maybe long lost and forgotten, maybe only longed for.

Whatever was there, waiting for us, we knew it would have involved a new way to think about death, and especially the relationship with those on the other side.
That’s it.
Maybe that is the real reason that made us leave, that pushed us toward this adventure.
