SUMMON THE STORM the very first short film by photographer, Dex R. Jones in collaboration with, artist, Jamilla Okubo.
The leaves are parched and the earth is broken. And so it was somewhere between night and day when no one could see, that a spirit was sent to dance a storm into a brew. This spirit pulled water up from the ground and conjured clouds out from a dry air. Peacefully yet violently, a storm was summoned. So we were promised rain. But we do not know how or when it will come.
For no one can predict the weather.
A Jamilla Okubo and Dexter R. Jones collaboration.
