Kenyan-born African American, Peres Owino’s new and multi-award winning documentary reveals the complex struggle between Africans and African Americans. The film looks to take the first steps towards bridging the gap between both cultures’ shared history by having a long and overdue conversation about the enslavement of Africans, the colonisation of Africa and its continuous effects. The film opens with personal testimonials that expose these rifts, then walks us through the corridors of African colonialism and African American enslavement, laying bare their effects and how these have both divided and bound Africans and African Americans.
