Maangamizi - The Ancient more than a movie. It is a look at how we’ve been torn at our roots; severed from nourishment at the source...Those of us who can remember and honor who we have been over eons of time, will be able to inspire the whole world to greater heights of compassion.
~ Alice Walker, author of ”The Color Purple”
