Fanditha is one of the most interesting topics when it comes to Dhivehi culture. Ancient practices – not all legal – are still more popular than many people realise. We’ve written about it once before – here and here – but have barely scratched the surface (of the cursed coconut).
We’ve been unable to put much content together over the past few months as Dan’s been writing out huge incantations for another project, though Naj continues to cast regular spells on Instagram as well as moving into video work.
Here’s a little film she’s put together this week showing a few moments in the life of a fugitive fandithaveriya. It’s the type of thing we’d like to do much more in the future to help tell more stories from the atolls.
Hope you enjoy it.
