The Madonna Murti (2011)
Black and beautiful, the paradox of separation and unity.
Siparia in southern Trinidad is home to a mysterious spiritual icon: a black female statue venerated by Catholics and Hindus alike. Through interviews with devotees, pilgrims, pundits and priests, the movie explores the obscure origins of Divina Pastora or Siparee Ke Mai and her continuing relevance today.
