Archipelago (2012)

A remix of an ancient origin story of Okinawan siblings, and the history of Batuc, a village in the Yaqui River Valley which was flooded by the Mexican government.  Archipelago offers up a evening of loss, cultural survival, the wrath of the deities -- past, present and the future.
