In 1962 Ernesto De Martino traveled to the South of Italy for his ethnographic research and shot "La Taranta." A study around women who were poisoned by a Tarantula bite while harvesting in the fields. The remedy against the deadly poison was a folk dance called Taranta. The women danced the poison out of their bodies with the help of local musicians and priests

I reappropriated the footage to proposes a different angle of the story surrounding these women..
