“Animists are people who recognise that the world is full of persons, some of whom are human, and that life is always lived in relationship with others.”—Graham Harvey, Animism
A trance dance water implosion, a newer line drawn between secular possession and religious phenomena. Filmed in one shot at a sacred site on the Upper Suriname River, the minor secrets of a Saramaccan animist everyday are revealed as time itself is undone. Rites are the new trypps; embodiment is our eternal everything.—Ben RUSSELL
