Nzambi: Doku über Voodoo, Drogen und Zombies

VBS hat die ersten beiden Teile ihrer Voodoo-Drogen-Zombie-Doku „Nzambi“ online gestellt, in der Hamilton Morris („unser hauseigener Bewusstseinserweiterer bereist den Globus auf der Suche nach dem perfekten High“) Wade Davis (Autor von „Die Schlange im Regenbogen“) interviewt und auf Haiti Voodoo-Rituale besucht. Die folgenden vier Teile werden bis Halloween auf VBS veröffentlicht, ich bringe hier dann nochmal die komplette Doku.

Teil 1

(VBS DirektVoodoo)

Inspired by Haitian tales of human reanimation, VBS correspondent Hamilton went on a mission to discover the truth about Haitian zombies. His mission began by visiting Wade Davis, an expert in the science of Haitian witchcraft and author of The Serpent and the Rainbow. Davis, a world renowned ethnobotanist, claims a living person can be turned into a zombie by two special powders entering the blood stream. After being briefed, Hamilton took off for Port-Au-Prince on a quest for the secret poisons and the truth about the living dead.

Teil 2

(VBS Direktzombies)

Hamilton arrives in Port-Au-Prince and checks in to the Adams Family mansion. There he meets his guide Alex, a man who survived fourteen bullets to the face. Together they attend a Vodou ceremony and watch a pig become an ambassador to the gods.
