The First Sunrise

The First Sunrise was inspired by the meaning of the east, as taught by the Anishinaabe Peoples of North America. This video seeks to express the beauty, power and mystery of the east. As it is from the east that we witness the sunrise, the start of a new day and symbolically the birth of man and our universe.
