Holy Ghost People, by Peter Adair

holy ghost people by peter adair

Dang! Holy Ghost People documents a Holy Ghost congregation in Scrabble Creek, West Virginia, directed by Peter Adair in 1967.

If you like primitive music, a backwoods accent, tongues, snake handling, and grainy black and white, you'll love these videos. It reminds me of the churches I used to go to when I was a kid.

Margaret Mead said this is one of the best ethnographic films ever made.
