This intimate 80-minute portrait film explores the life of eighth-generation household Daoist Li Manshan (b.1946), leader of a group of ritual specialists in the poor countryside of Yanggao county in north Shanxi, China.
A film by Stephen Jones; edited by Michele Banal, with funding from the ANR Shifu project (Paris Nanterre).
The film complements Stephen Jones' new book "Daoist priests of the Li family: ritual life in village China" (Three Pines, 2016).
Obviously they don't allow embedding, perhaps that is so that they can monitor comments. But you can click the link to watch it on Vimeo. Very cool, neat music, can't wait to read the book and meet the author in Paris at the next Daoist Studies International Conference.
