“Cuyamungue”: Documentary of a Trance Session

Earlier this year, I did a rattling demonstration for a spirituality class at NYU.  After the demonstration, a young man named Nick Blatt came up and introduced himself as a film student at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. He expressed interest in my work and asked if I would be willing to be the subject of a short documentary, in which I would conduct a trance session with four of his friends. What came of the project is one of the few known recordings of this type of work, and an accurate and well executed representation of one of my group sessions.

You can see other examples of Nick’s work on his Youtube page. Please note that this film was made as a student project and a work of documentary film making, and was not intended as an advertisement. The participants are unaffiliated volunteers without any professional or contractual relationship with either myself or the Cuyamungue Institute.
