Sun Dance

Sun Dance

In the Carpathian-Danubian space during the spring equinox, the Knight Trac god, died and then rise. He was represented in two rival forms: the Horse God incarnated in man, and that of the people who disguised Horse. The latter, also called Calusari, had to chase evil spirits, Fairies. It is an ancient ritual that dramatizes opposition between the Sun and the Moon, the Good and the Evil, the known and the unknown, which is still practiced today on the day of Pentecost as the "Calus". Since 2008 it is part of the UNESCO intangible cultural heritage.

Some may say this is a usual Cornel Gheorghita movie. NOO! This movie was amazing to watch.

Well-crafted, well-written, and well-acted film. Doina Rusti added depth to its characters and an acerbic quality to its witty dialog.

Absolutely awesome. Cornel Gheorghita is a visual genius, I mean he is able to center the whole film and the whole action on the feelings.

It's been a long time since I've seen a Documentary film that so wonderfully blends together such a high level of emotional depth.
