Dances Sacred and Profane: Fakir Musafar


"I finally met Fakir at Annie Sprinkle's New York apartment in 1980. The next year Fakir and I worked together on a feature film by Mark and Dan Jury titled Dances Sacred and Profane, in which Fakir not only explains but demonstrates his philosophy and practices. The climax of the film shows Fakir doing the Native American Sun Dance ritual. He performed a preliminary ritual at Devil's Tower in Wyoming--a sensational sacred site. Then Fakir found a remote wooded area, consecrated a cottonwood tree, and suspended himself with flesh-hooks while he left his body and communicated with the Great White Spirit. The footage was awesome, and when the film opened at San Francisco's Roxie Theater in 1985, there were lines around the block. Lots of people were interested in these rituals." - Charles Gatewood



All of us know we should not prejudge others. Does this feeling of accectance apply to people who modify thier body beyond what is normal? Extreme is relative to perception. What is normal? Everyone modifies thier body in one form or another to help show on the outside how they feel on the inside. You will meet more than thirty of the most modified people that have ever lived, and the amazing body artists that have changed them forever..........WINNER - Boston Underground Film Festival
