National Geographic’s Taboo (Canadian Premiere) – January 2003
Exotic cultures lure and engage our imagination. But, the mysteries within each culture often seem too dangerous, too cursed, or too sacred for our everyday sensibilities. Through our rituals, we celebrate birth and death, prepare for travel, marriage or conquest, unleash the power to heal and transform ourselves, and enter into another world. A world where daily rules no longer apply, where witches, sorcerers, and shamans dwell – the world of taboo.
