ALIVE IN A DEATH ROBE (Bangladesh, 2004)

Baul is a spiritual movement in Bangladesh that denies an afterlife, and allows men and women equal status. Anyone wishing to join becomes a disciple of a guru and must live by begging. After a long initiation process the believer receives the khilafat and, dressed in a shroud from that moment on, breaks all ties with his or her former life. The believer is now free from all emotions, relations, possessions and lust.
