I bring you back to Toraja Country, Sulawesi (Indonesia). After the pictures of the traditional funeral ceremony which 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 friends, be careful before watching this little film ... Pigs and buffaloes are sacrificed and cut up during the funeral: these images can hit.

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.
