Meet the Vodou Priestess Summoning Healing Spirits in Post-Earthquake Haiti

0



Broadly teams up with Academy Award-winning director, Lucy Walker in search of healing in Haiti. We travel to the heart of Port-au-Prince, Haiti to join Priestess Manbo Katy as she summons the spirits to help heal her community. Six years after the 2010 earthquake, which killed more than 160,000 and left over a million people without a home, Haiti is still in dire need of physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.

Katy comforts all those who orbit in her sphere, feeding their stomachs and their souls with a combination of financial support and traditional Vodou healing practices. We follow Katy and those whose lives she’s touched as they gather, adorn the temple, and prepare for the celebration of the dead, an immersive and transformative ceremony that will call on the spirits to protect the community.
