Filmed in Scrabble Creek, West Virginia, Holy Ghost People (1967) joins the Holiness church for worship. Director Peter Adair's ethnographic vérité style creates an intimate portrait of true faith. The congregation sings, dances, speaks in tongues, drinks strychnine, and handles poisonous serpents. The transcendental atmosphere is cut with tension, more so when I tell you someone gets bitten.

Get the Ghost: watch or download the full documentary.

thanks to murky recess!
