Summary
Synopsis: IN SEARCH OF VOODOO: Roots to Heaven weaves together a personal, cultural, and spiritual journey - capturing the vibrant tales of Voodoo, West Africa, and Benin's favorite son, actor Djimon Hounsou. Following Hounsou back to the country of his birth, it's the story of a man rediscovering the core of his past and the lessons that the world can learn from a vibrant, yet misrepresented way of life. This documentary seeks to illuminate the practice of faith that is prevalent within West Africa, specifically Benin, aka "the cradle of Voodoo". There is a dark and unfair mythology surrounding the central tenants of that faith that must be dispelled. Voodoo is an organic belief system that values the most positive aspects of nature and life. The spirits of Voodoo are regarded as beneficent beings, each controlling their domain with respect and harmony rather than violence and conflict. IN SEARCH OF VOODOO: Roots to Heaven gives a world-wide audience an inside experience to Voodoo ceremonies, led by well-respected priests, that has never been captured on film before
