    Iceland is a land of glaciers and volcanoes. This island with its black soil was still wild and uninhabited when the first Vikings arrived in the 9th century. The first colonists settled in the bay of Reykjavik and soon spread across the whole territory. 

    From the first Icelandic parliament in Thingvellir to the myths that endure today, the arrival of these pioneers would change this isle of ice and fire forever.

    In the Tigray region of Ethiopia, Orthodox Christians confront their fears and baptize their children in churches perched high in the sky. At 800 meters, the troglodyte church of Abuna Yemata Guh is possibly the most inaccessible church on the planet. Every day in this extraordinary place, men and women risk their lives to edge along the narrow crest to place their dead in the cavities in the rock, and to baptize their newborns on the top of the mountain.

    On the day of the baptism, Khasa and her baby leave the village and head for the church. Draped in the traditional white, they walk for more than an hour to the mountain. At the bottom, the young mother scales the rock face, her feet and hands bare. The climb is difficult and extremely dangerous.
     
    In the church, the priest and his assistant are waiting. The murals and ceiling of the church date from the 14th century and have been perfectly preserved. They are considered to be the most exceptional in the region of Tigray. The ceremony begins…

    Fire dancing in Papua New Guinea or climbing to the top of the Ethiopian cliffs to introduce one’s child to God: this series reveals how some people today still practice rituals that structure their lives and become, beyond a simple social bond, a structuring force and a source of culture.

    In societies that struggle to find their bearings, rituals - whether pagan or mysterious - are of particular importance when people are confronted with the unknown, illness, death, not knowing what tomorrow is made of. Rituals help organise chaos, warding off our fears and bringing to light the meaning in our lives.
    Anthropologist, Anne-Sylvie Malbrancke, helps us understand and experience these moments with those who practice them.​

On foot and by canoe, their journey takes them to grandiose and isolated territories, to discover spectacular and unknown rituals, even for them.

    In Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country, the Minangkabau are a matriarchal society. While Koranic law attributes only one-third of the inheritance to girls, the property of a Minangkabau family is passed on from mother to daughter and men can be repudiated by their wives.

    Reini is a young woman from the Minangkabau ethnic group in West Sumatra. She is getting married. She goes to pick up her future husband from his parents’. According to their tradition, she is the one who has to lead him to the ceremony where the guests are waiting. After the wedding, the young husband will move in with his in-laws and take care of the children of his clan, while Reini will work in the fields.
     
    But in Indonesia, in recent years, Islam has become more rigid. Nowadays more and more men want to restrict women's freedom. Reini knows that the Minangkabau way of life and traditions are in danger, but she plans to fight to protect them.

    IN SIBERIA WITH THE EXILES FROM LAKE BAIKAL

    In the outer reaches of Siberia, the frozen shores of Lake Baikal are swept by a bitter wind. Those particularly hostile conditions inspired the Russian power to deport its enemies there from the 16th century onwards.

    In the outer reaches of Siberia, the frozen shores of Lake Baikal are swept by a bitter wind. Those particularly hostile conditions inspired the Russian power to deport its enemies there from the 16th century onwards. 

    There, these exiles – from religious minorities and Russian intellectual circles – build villages, develop their own culture and spread their ideas as far as Irkutsk; the city was soon nicknamed the Siberian Paris.

    Quito, the capital of Ecuador, seems imprisoned among volcanoes. At its heart, the city has some impressive and richly-decorated churches which bear witness to an auspicious period for South American architecture.

    Baroque art came from Europe with the colonists and acquired another dimension here in contact with Amerindian culture. So much so that it became a stamp of Ecuadorean cultural identity.

    Bodies and heads decorated with garlands of flowers move to the sound of tribal percussion on the black sand of a Polynesian beach. This sacred dance, with its links to the earth, is the Ori Tahiti, which goes back to the descendants of the island’s first inhabitants. 

    It has survived through the ages, withstanding the ban that was imposed by the first Protestant colonists, and it remains a key component of Tahitian identity.

    In the heart of the Amazon rainforests of Brazil, the Sateré-Mawé people have a rite of passage to adulthood where a show of bravery turns boys into men.

    Some 20 years ago, Sergio left his tribe to study in the city. This year, he is returning to the community with his son Jackson, aged 12. It is time for the young boy to join the ranks of the Sateré-Mawé. To earn this status, Jackson must suffer the worst the jungle has to offer – the ritual of Da Tucandeira: Placing his hand inside a glove woven with hundreds of bullet ants whose venom is said to be the most painful in the world.
     
    According to tribe members, this painful initiation prepares the young men for life and proves they are capable of fulfilling their reproduction obligations. The boys must endure the ordeal 20 times in their lives. For the Sateré-Mawé, virility is demonstrated through one’s resistance to pain, with no tears and no weakness.
