Short Synopsis: The film describes the Feast of Saint George from Buru (Romania) called Babaluda. By recoding the shared visual ethnography that was arranged in a big group in a large screening room, but also in small groups in private houses, the Feast is explained from the reactions of the participants. The film will try to experiment the ways in which the visual ethnographic narrative is constructed by looking at, the looked at.
