Belly of the Tantra – The Left Hand Path of God
I’ve just finished my first video interview for Die Elektrischen Vorspiele. My guest was film director Pankaj Purohit. This interview was filmed after the screening of his film Belly of the Tantra, which took place at Maus Hábitos (Porto – Portugal), integrated at the Cine-Rebis (The London & Porto Underground Film Festivals).
Still from Belly of the Tantra
Belly of the Tantra – A mystical journey, sometimes darkness tells a story too. A journey towards the Left Hand Path of God.
Documentary exploring an ancient and eccentric sect of Hinduism, the Aghori, whose sacred rituals include the eating of human flesh. The film delves into the radical beliefs and extreme rituals of Tantra that religion can incite. By exploring an ancient and eccentric sect of Hinduism along the river Ganges and throughout India which has sparked much controversy and significant taboo, “Belly of the Tantra” challenges our notions of faith and the limits to which one can go.
The final result of this interesting conversation should come out in a couple of weeks.
Till there, take a look at the Belly of the Tantra’s trailer!
