Sex, Death And The Gods (BBC Documentary)


This documentary is about the Devadasi system, an ancient Hindu tradition in which young girls are married to a god in childhood, and are sold for sex at puberty. The documentary investigates the surprising history of this little-understood community, reveals their rich and privileged past as concubines to the princes and priests of India’s ruling class and explores their heritage as dancers and entertainers.
