收驚 Siu-kiann

"Siu-Kiann," a well known but unfamiliar word in Taiwan folklore. By this documentary, audiences can experience all the steps of Siu-Kiann. There are multilevel meanings in this film, it's as mysterious as the religion, and it also like the contradictions and questions all around. Under the jumble media, the diversity of Siu-Kiann drops a hint to let the audiences identity the actual situation during watching it.

True and false, real and fake and some psychological effects that cannot be quantified by scientific. Will you "believe it or not," or "rather believe it to be truth than not ?"
