Bells From the Deep: Faith and Superstition in Russia (Glocken aus der Tiefe)

Examines the mysticism and asceticism of religious practices in a region of Siberia near the upper course of the Yenisei River: pilgrims crawling across a barely frozen lake, hoping for a view of the legendary Kitezh, a village believed sunken intact by God to save it from Mongol raiders, "transmission of cosmic energy" into bottled water hawked by faith healer Alan Chumack; women under the spell of "sorcerer/exorcist" Yuri Tarassov; and followers of a robed, Christ-like man. A film by Werner Herzog. 1993. 60 min.
