The Enlightened Time (Jana)

The Enlightened Time (Jana)
Director: Stephan Galfas & Clint Childers
5 Minutes • USA • Music Video

This is a gorgeously shot, inspirational “mini movie” that uses beauty of nature and the American western desert landscape as a backdrop for the compelling message of Jana’s song, “The Enlightened Time.”

Jana embarks upon a journey that finds her looking into the past of her people through the eyes of Sha’kona, the heroine of this song who lived many generations ago. As Jana looks back in time and sees the wonderful experiences that took place in the lives of Sha’kona and her people so long ago, she discovers the true meaning of who she is and where she came from. Through her connection with her people and their past, Jana understands their strength, unity and solidarity-ideals that still hold true in our world today.
