You are bidding on a 16mm film print  of the 1974 short documentary THE SPIRIT POSSESSION OF ALEJANDRO MAMNI directed by Hubert Smith. This film was part of the FACES OF CHANGE ethnographic documentary series funded by the National Science Foundation and produced by Norman Miller. Powerful, award-winning short on mental illness.

This film features a case study of Alejandro Mamani, an elder Aymara Indian whose village is located in the mountains of Bolivia. The episode focuses on Alejandro's experiences with an unexplained mental illness diagnosed as spiritual possession by Alejandro, his family and the members of his village. Ethnographers trace the man's suffering as he and his family try to cope with the unpredictability of the illness and the inevitability of death. The filmmakers are challenged to move from acting as observers to actively participating in the study, offering medicine to the suffering man. They describe, in detail, the effects Alejandro's illness has on him personally, as well as the effects his death will have on his property and family. The student is able to observe the progression of illness as Alejandro deteriorates from a respected leader in his community, to one whom is totally dependent on his family for survival. The program offers insights into the methods different cultures use to cope with both illness and death
