The Dance of the Spirits: A Funeral in the Village of Oulo
 

In the spring of 2010 the masks of the Winiama village of Ouri, in central Burkina Faso, travelled south ten kilometers to attend the funeral of Illa Karfa, a male elder whose mother had come from Ouri. The video is notable for the very large number of ancient, sacred masks that appear in dramatic performances that interpret the characters of the spiritual beings they embody.
