Scent of Heaven and Hell - A Cultural History of Ritual Fragrances
Der Duft von Himmel und Hölle
No matter which deities men worship across the globe, the fragrance of given substances has always played a key part in expressing desire or gratitude, in uttering execrations or lamentations. Gustav W. Trampitsch has traveled the world in pursuit of this phenomenon. The film features a visual and acoustic documentation of the elusive, magical world of ritual scent.
