African Superheroes: Many artists are making up for the severe lack of positive images of black people in animated films and comics. This animation festival for 6-60 year olds, will feature a variety of African-themed cartoons which tell tales of; Magical Nigerian women warriors, Anansi the West African Folk Hero, The story of Ogun
Nubian Spirit is a beautifully shot documentary which unravels the fascinating of legacy of Ancient Sudan. It shines light onto the Ancient African culture, history and spiritual mythology of the people from the Nile Valley. The film digs deep into Ancient Africa's numerous contributions to modern civilization. It features dynamic interviews with leading scholars, Robin Walker, K.N Chimbiri, and Anthony Browder, to name just a few.
It has been well recorded that the first humans on the planet emerged from the beautiful continent of Africa. However most people today know little about how these African cultures have influenced modern society. The makers of this film understand the importance of sharing authentic African history in a balanced way and how under represented it is in the western world view. They have signifcantly contributed to setting the balance straight by accurately representing the facts and the information that has been discovered.
