Rare Video: The Occult Experience

The video above is a rare Australian documentary from 1985 called The Occult Experience, which I learnt about via pagan blog The Wild Hunt. The video, which is 95 minutes long, had been hard to find, but has now been uploaded to Vimeo by one of the programme's directors.

Although it does seem a bit dated, it has some fascinating scenes of rituals and ceremonies from various occult, pagan and spiritual paths including Wicca, the Fellowship of Isis and shamanic traditions. There are interviews with Margot Adler and Janet Farrar, among others. The documentary also talks to Satanists and fundamentalist Christians. Warning - there is nudity and some bad 80s fashions and haircuts.
