ANCESTRAL VOICES, Esoteric African Knowledge

I saw the film “Ancestral Voices”  a couple of years ago at the British Film Institute and thought it was a valuable and educational film highlighting the misconceptions of African traditional Religions and also the important task of dispelling some myths. I am really happy to offer a brief interview Verona Spence-Adofo and Dalian Adofo, the married couple behind the film. They are currently working towards “Ancestral Voices” Part 2 so please have a read and if you feel like you want to support please do by sharing the interview and getting the word out. I was quite interested in…


“ I am annoyed as other people are at the misrepresentation of African Traditional Religions. I think it speaks to the world rebranding what we stand for and who we are as a people” …. “ It is my goal to…. provide something different that is informed by the actual people” (who practice the religion). “The journey of the film has been crazy” Nosa explains. “Some people involved in the film dropped out because they were worried about being stigmatised. These people are Nigerians themselves” ….. “I am trying to connect with people so please get in contact. The short is coming out in May but the feature film will be layered and deep and I welcome all of your input”
