Like A Knife: The Real Vodu is the first film of the ReVodution film series. Ghanaian brothers and Vodu practitioners, Sena and Pele Voncujovi, pose the question, “How would you describe Vodu?” Part verité and part exposé, this short documentary gets to the root of how traditional African spiritual and herbal practices have become stigmatized and marginalized. Scenes of ceremonies, herbal lessons, and readings with spiritual leaders demystify Vodu and explore how realities of modern life are not incompatible with an intricate and intimate relationship with traditional spirituality.
