Tsenacommacah, is what the Powhatan called their territory of Tidewater Virginia. Roughly translated as, “densely inhabited land.” An experiential recall takes form through the spiritual symbology of the region in this sensory short film. Ahone the Creator, who sometimes took the form of a Great Hare, comes from the rising sun. But there were other spirits as well—Okee, the trickster of Chaos and ruler of the underworld. A dance unfolds between them. USA, 2020, 9 minutes.
