Dances Sacred and Profane (1985) is a film by Dan Jury and Mark Jury, written by Charles Gatewood. It is a "mondo" style documentary about body modification, modern primitives and Fakir Musafar. It premiered at the Antwerp Film Festival and was screened at American theaters to critical acclaim.

The film follows Fakir Musafar to South Dakota with Jim Ward for the photoshoot of a "Sun Dance" ceremony that featured Fakir hanging in a A Man Called Horse-style sun dance (O-kee-pa) from his chest piercings.
