Part of "The Call of Africa" series. Christianity, Islam, and a broad range of indigenous religions coexist side by side in Africa, in many cases blending into unique hybrids. In order to spotlight the nature of the continent's spiritual practice, the following are overviewed: an exorcism; The Ceremony of the Infertile Woman; the veneration of water spirits; and a pilgrimage to the Sof Omar Cave (the longest cave in Ethiopia), where a blend of Christianity, Islam, and animism is practiced. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
