 18:00 - 20:30 : Meeting and Screening of “Three Shamans” (77 min), with the documentarists Adrien Viel and Aurore Laurent (the projection is on French).
Location : Alliance Française of Venice - Ponte dei Baretteri - San Marco 4939.
“In the heart of Himalayan hills, the Shamans travel in the ethereal. Shamans’ vocation is to relieve suffering people exploring and making contact to the ancestors and spirits’ worlds. Everyone has his method: three stories, three countries, three shamans”
About the documentary

Aurore Laurent said :
“Our purpose was to follow only one Shaman in his pratice, but during the recording, we understand that everyone has his own way to practice shamanism due to the different ethnic groups and heritage. That’s why we understand it would had been reducing telling only one history. Shamans people are usually erudites, poets or insane… We immediately decided to build the movie as a triptyque : 3 report on 3 states of shamanism in Nepal. We followed 3 ethnic groups during the documentary; Gurung, Tamang and Chepang, trying to show how various is this practice, according to ethnich, geographic and economic conditions. In the documentary are well-shown the differences between the first and most alive shamanism and the third more declined one.”

Gosainkunda Full Moon Festival Shamanism Janai Purnima pilgrimage

 PHOTO OF THE DAY

Gosainkunda

Full Moon Festival & Shamanism

one of Nepal's most famous religious places of pilgrimage is Gosainkunda lake situated at an altitude of about 4312 m.

Surrounded by high mountains on the north and east, this lake is grand and picturesque.

Every year during Janai Purnima in August, thousands of Hindu pilgrims come here for pilgrimage and it is quite a sight.

The large rock in the center of the lake is said to be the remains of a Shiva shrine and it is also claimed that channel carries water from the lake directly to the tank at the Kumbheshwar Temple in Patan, 60 km to the south.

Shamans ("Dhami") come from all over Nepal arrive to the lake and on full moon night.

There is much dancing and singing.

This day is considered holy by the shamans whereby apprentices or "Jhankris" graduate into full shamans.
