Descriptif

At the end of March 2020, in a village in Nepal, affected like the rest of the country - and the world - by lockdown, news of the virus spreads. Some villagers decide to perform the Sansari ritual, goddess of epidemics, adapting it to the current circumstances. Relationship to politics, relationship to nature, the place of the stranger, respect for tradition and adaptation to change, human and divine responsibility, rumours and learned discourse... As elsewhere, they search for what to think and what to do, and cobble together uncertain answers. This is an opportunity to discover other reflections on the current crisis linked to the virus, an offbeat perspective, which nevertheless strangely echoes what is said and done elsewhere in this world that the current epidemic has helped to make evermore global.
