Ancestral Voices 2

Spirit is Eternal

£N/A in Post-Production

This documentary will explore the philosophies of African cosmologies and spiritual traditions. It will highlight and connect the similarities that exist in the traditions for communities across the continent and in the Diaspora, from ancient times to the present. Areas covered include the African conception of the Creator ‘God’, the spiritual essence of humanity, our relationships with the immaterial realm and the ancestors in the cycle of life and continuity across realms and daily rituals for living. The shared rituals vary from practices for venerating the creative source and ancestors, to setting up altars and how to enhance one’s spiritual development.

    Like many of us I have been brought up a Christian and cannot claim to understand African spirituality. That said I do agree with the knowledge this group is gathering underlying the sad fact that across Africa, practitioners of African spirituality are consistently persecuted even by their own communities by being accused of practicing witchcraft and other claims perpetuated by our ignorance of our own spirituality. If this group can help set the record straight through their research and documentary they deserve, our support. This is good work.
