For hundreds of years, the Aoyao people have inhabited the hills of Guangxi. In this ethnographic film, a Shigong (wizard) of the Xiaguchen Village describes their origins, their view of the souls, and the myths of local temples. It also contains extraordinary footage of a ritual “Inviting Gan the King”; the oral history of Shigong, the feedbacks from the villagers, and more.
