AKIPRESS.COM - The film “Ceremony” will be shown on October 29 in Hardwick, the town of Caledonia County, Vermont, according to Stowe Reporter.
Refreshments and a discussion with the film’s director, Sas Carey, will follow the screening.
Carey will talk about her extensive work and travels with Mongolian people, the role of shamanism and traditional medicine for healing arts in northern Asia, and her book, “Reindeer Herders In My Heart.”
Carey is a registered nurse who has traveled in the outer edges of Mongolia for over 20 years, working with nomadic Mongols by providing healthcare and education about healthcare to these groups.
Carey says making “Ceremony” was complicated: “It required trips over many years to northern Mongolia by car, train, horse, jeep and reindeer through rivers and mud, over boulders and mountains. It required camping out in reindeer herders’ Siberian yurts (tipi) or our own tents. No bathrooms or even outhouses. Getting to know the people and their lifestyle was the first requirement. More years were needed to get permission to see a ceremony and even more to film one.”
