The Fourfold


Director:Alisi Telengut


Run time:7'


Based on the ancient shamanic rituals and animistic beliefs in Mongolia and Siberia, the film explores the indigenous worldview and the wisdom it has to offer. In this belief system, Nature is the homeland of humans, Tengri is the deity, Earth is the mother with rivers nourishing all beings, and paganist and pantheist gods co-exist with mortals. Against the backdrop of modern existential crisis and rapid environmental change, there is a necessity to reclaim ideas of animism for planetary health and non-human life.
