I bring you back to Toraja Country, Sulawesi (Indonesia). After the pictures of the traditional funeral ceremony I attended, in the village of Bori, here is a small video that gives a good idea of the atmosphere.

Atmosphere in Toraja Country

Sensitive souls and animal lovers, be careful before watching this little film... Pigs and buffaloes are sacrificed and skinned during funerals: these images can be offensive.

This video was made with my Canon Eos 7D. The image quality is really fantastic, compared to what I did on the same theme in 2007, in another village of Sulawesi, with my little Powershot A95.
