Rate this:
Nicknamed the "Warm Heart of Africa," Malawi has a reputation for its inhabitants' smiles and for mystery. Throughout the country, the Bantu people, descended from the former Maravi Empire, practice ancestral rites within secret societies called "Nyau." Bernard Fontanille travels to this little known country, to meet its healers. Their approach to care is guided by a concern for adaptation and integration. An increasing number of traditional doctors are becoming intermediaries between the gradually emerging modern system of treatment, and the impoverished population. Bernard discovers the complex role of traditional doctors alongside Bulumeni "Blueman" and his assistant Martha.
