EthnoKino – DESCENDING WITH ANGELS

April 4 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

DESCENDING WITH ANGELS
75 min., Denmark, 2013, Denmark, by Christian Suhr
Language: Danish and Arabic with English subtitles

Islamic exorcism or psychotropic medication? “Descending with Angels” explores two highly different solutions to the same problem: namely Danish Muslims who are possessed by invisible spirits, called jinn. The film compares two systems of treatment that despite vast differences both share a view of healing as operating through submission of faith to an external non-human agency—namely God or biomedicine.
