Check out this exclusive two part interview with the directors of Ancestral Voices: Esoteric African Knowledge as they discuss their motivations and passion for creating an educational documentary that spans two continents.

In the process, film makers Verona Spence and Dalian Adofo (Longbelly Entertainment) have opened up a much-needed debate about traditional African spiritual systems, exposing a topic that has often been shrouded in much mystique, negativity, superstition and ignorance. Indeed, my own personal knowledge of African spiritual systems is limited to the stereotypical images i have seen in various movies and books throughout the years. However, it is clear from the 5,000 views that the trailer for “Ancestral Voices” has achieved already; that there is a large desire for a greater and deeper understanding of African spiritual systems, and for them to be treated comparably to any other spiritual system. The point is that “Ancestral Voices” has opened the door for these issues to be discussed without fear of persecution, creating a climate of the reciprocity of respect.  Consequently, I expect that I am not the only one who looks forward to being educated by this film when it premieres at London’s Ritzy Theatre in Brixton on Saturday 7th May 2011.

We’ve spotted the trailer for a documentary named Portobello Rd by our friends at Longbelly Entertainment (featured above in the post entitled Ancestral Voices) and thought we should share it:

“Portobello has such a fascinating history from originally being a farming area to becoming widely known as cultural melting pot which led to housing one of the biggest street festivals in Europe, the Notting Hill Carnival. The film is widely told from the perspectives from those who know it the most…the locals. With statements from the market traders, shoppers, and local residents the spirit of Portobello and the entire community comes across strong allowing the viewer to embrace the passion behind the area, whilst gaining information on the history, culture and diverse fusion of the community.”

“The film sets out to discover whether there is a genuine threat to the market covering issues such as commercialisation, increasing property prices plus other social changes within the area. The discussion is played out by various interviews with various parties including the local authorities, market traders and the community themselves.”

Our friends at Myndz Community have put us onto the annual Urban Green Fair which is happening in London this year on Sunday September 4th in Brockwell Park, London. “The Urban Green Fair is a grassroot event that seeks to inform, entertain and educate the South London community through workshops, discussions, demonstrations, spoken word and poetry on green and social issues to foster positive and sustainable change.” Check out this video to get an idea of what it has to offer.

Some of the discourse from debates and footage from spoken word performances from last year’s Urban Green Fair was captured by the Myndz Community Network in Earth Mother Nature film project excerpts of which can be found at the link provided.

Podcasts of some of talks given at last year’s Urban Green Fair can be found here. Topics covered include “Rethinking Money”; “What is Neo-Liberalism”;  Kemetic Yoga and Bio-fuels among others. Definitely worth checking out.
