The Quest for Sound

This film concerns the initiation of Corine, who is French, by the Mongolian master shaman Enkhtuya, a reindeer herder, who lives in the Taiga. The film-maker traces the process intimately, from the making of the shamanic paraphernalia to the initiate’s experiences in modified states of consciousness. But this adventure is also the portrait of a woman and her relationship with her shaman teacher.
