"Kucinich for President is a video initially made by Omananda, supported by: Phisciences
The story of the video is funny. I filmed Dennis Kucinich when he spoke at the Health and Harmony festival in California. A musican made a track of his speech that ended up in our studio. Stock footage was used to create the US Presidential film that was not an official campaign movie, but a film from the underground that supported Dennis annyways. It was shown at his campaign meetings and eventually re-done with original animation in our studios in San Francisco.
A Sundance Ceremony in Central America aligns with the vision of the Eagle and the Condor that is a prophecy of the Native nations in the Western Hemisphere. The Elders of this (American) continent remember and talk about this prophecy that foretold how people will come together and reunite as one. This 25 minute edit has a special importance, as it has recorded vital history. The land "Timictla", where this sundance ceremony was recorded, is a place where the Eagle and the Condor are coming together. This Sundance Ceremony recorded by Omananda in spring 2007 was an offering for this vision to manifest. It was an honor and a blessings to be able to film this sacred ritual, since normally it is forbidden to film or photograph a Sundance. This special piece was finished in May, 2007. It was recorded in Spanish, and subtitled in English. Armando and Torsten worked for the first time on digital media together, and magic it was! The film was co-produced by: Omananda & Xochipili Productions. All audio and visuals were made on the spot, including pre- &post productions and encoding it to DVD. Creating it from beginning to end took one month.
