Synopsis

Featuring avant-pop and world-fusion electronic music, a mesmerizing sequence of dialogue-free scenes propel a meditation on the sweeping commonalities found in spiritual dance rituals across distinct cultural communities residing in Alberta. Ceremonial song and movement is a universal method cultural groups use to connect to higher realms. As the film progresses through a 24hr sun cycle, sacred dance involving the following groups will be showcased: indigenous, transgendered, islamic, mainstream millennial, south & east asian. Neither a traditional documentary nor a music video, YAH WAVE takes the form of a non-verbal, rhythmically guided meditation to serve as a metaphysical reflection of it's diverse Canadian audience.
