Ancestral Voices: Esoteric African Knowledge
In spite of being recognized as some of the oldest spiritual systems known to man, traditional African belief systems such as, Juju, Obeah, Voodoo and Vodun are often misunderstood as cults or fringe. Equally distressing to their practitioners, is that the general public is unaware of the significant impact and contributions these African belief systems have played in helping to shape other mainstream religions such as, Judaism, Islam and Christianity.
Using a variety of interviews and footage of traditional African spiritual practices, the documentary film Ancestral Voices Esoteric African Knowledge explores the cosmology of traditional African spiritual systems and questions why there is such a stigmatization of these beliefs and practices.
