Oddball Films presentsAmerican Trance Cinema: Spellbinding Ceremonies, an 
evening of rare and intriguing films plus unique shorts exploring the unique 
cultural rituals and ceremonies of several disparate American demographics.  
Enjoy a rare chance to see these normally off-limits customs, including Peter 
Adair’s extraordinary ethnographic documentary Holy Ghost People (1967) which 
offers a fascinating look at a West Virginia Pentecostal congregation as they 
relish the religious fervor of speaking in tongues, anointing and trances.  
Famed ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax’s Buck Dancer (1965) reveals the Northern 
Mississippi tradition of buck dancing, in this rare filmic and musical 
artifact.  In Pomo Shaman (1964), we are privy to the intricacies of a Native 
American healing ceremony. Trance Cinema is part of a series of ongoing film 
programs exploring ritual, higher consciousness and altered states of awareness.
