"In societies that struggle to find their bearings, rituals—whether pagan or mysterious—are of particular importance when people are confronted with the unknown, illness, death, or not knowing what tomorrow is made of. Rituals help organize chaos, warding off our fears and bringing to light the meaning in our lives. Anthropologist Anne-Sylvie Malbrancke helps us understand and experience these moments with those who practice them. This series reveals how some people today still practice rituals that structure their lives, create a social bond, and reinforce a culture. In HD."
