River Rites
(River Rites)

by Ben RUSSELL

On the banks of the Suriname, Ben Russell films people bathing, a fisherman drawing in his net, a young girl washing linen on a rock. The unity of time seems to be a given: it is the length of a single shot, the length of a super-16 reel.

Shot at a sacred site on the Upper Suriname River, the minor secrets of an animist are revealed as time itself is undone.
