About

Using still and moving images, curator, photographer and filmmaker Leah Gordon will discuss the rituals, ceremonies and symbols that honour and perform the pantheon of Vodou spirits in Haiti. She will also give a brief history of the roots of Haitian Vodou, its relationship to the former plantation system and the slave led revolt that led to Haiti's 1804 independence.
