Below is a 6 part video series “Investigating the Haitian Zombie”, from the perspective of a young American writer and filmmaker named Hamilton Morris. In this series he embarks on a journey through Haiti to try and discover the science behind the process of zombification. Hamilton interviews Wade Davis, ethnobotanist and author of The Serpent and the Rainbow, a book turned film largely influenced by the story of Clairvius Narcisse. Clairvius Narcisse was a Haitian man said to have been turned into a zombie by a combination of drugs, often referred to as “zombie power”. That zombie powder is the subject of Hamilton’s investigation.
Hamilton also interviews Max Beauvoir, a well-known Haitian biochemist and houngan.
Ultimately, Morris leaves Haiti without the answer that he went looking for. The mystery continues!
