My first documentary project, In Search of Voodoo: Roots to Heaven, a collaboration with Djimon Hounsou, is having its world premiere at the Miami Film Festival this Saturday, March 10 at 9:30 PM. It was an amazing experience to work as the Director of Photography and witness Voodoo practices in Africa. Learn more about the film: http://www.insearchofvoodoo.com/
“Demonized by Christianity, scarred by colonialism and crudely misrepresented in Hollywood movies, we in the West know nothing about voodoo. It is time to tell the story from an African perspective.
With In Search of Voodoo, Hounsou returns to his West African birthplace to visit sacred sites, witness rituals and interview scholars, adepts and politicians, who provide an accessible survey of voodoo’s rich history and reliance on nature as a guiding force in the lives of its practitioners. Filled with majestic imagery and soul-stirring encounters,In Search of Voodoohelps to dispel decades of misconceptions—while speaking to that voice in every one of us that calls us home.”
