III) Protegido – Car-Blessings in Bolivia

"Protegido" origins from a Bachelor thesis in Religious Studies about the onmnipresent "car blessing" rituals in Bolivia: A road trip through amazing landscapes, recordings of participative observations and interviews of professional and private drivers explaining how they bless their vehicles in the course of one year. The exclusive focus on cars in blessing rituals underlines the dynamic nature of today's religiosity in Bolivia and challenges a perspective of loss and destruction.
