Customer Reviews

Personal enough and with a good cast of folks interviewed, nicely featured music, art, ritual, etc.
Russell Erwin
The brilliance is that it confronted popular society's views and all you feel is the love and passion without the criticism of the larger mainstream society.
Michael
I like the vision through the eyes of someone who really had never been into part of human history, not only Ancient African history, or Lost history.

Excellent look into the culture, tradition, and history of African Traditional Religions and how the rhythm of Africa still underlines the African-American spiritual culture.

A beautiful, magical, musical, spiritual -- and by the end deeply moving -- journey to the Waters of Return that both divide and unite ourselves and our ancestors, the material and the spiritual, present-day Americas and ancient Africa. A film I know I will watch a number of times, each time gaining something new--something I didn't know I'd lost. Aibobo!

Not about Hoodoo or anything else in any great depth, but touches many such bases in an affable manner. All on the course of an African Diaspora oddyssey exploring relatively alternative spirituality in the States as such. Personal enough and with a good cast of folks interviewed, nicely featured music, art, ritual, etc.

As some of you know since last fall I have been exploring the calling of "hoodoo" or conjure work/rootwork (As well as other spiritual traditions that stem from African Diaspora) In my exploration of the spiritual practice I was lead to this documentary. I went into it thinking it was going to be a practice-geared explanation on Hoodoo, but instead found a very beautiful narrative about Ancestry, Sharing, African Diaspora traditions, and the importance of connection. This isn't what I was expecting, But I am so glad I stumbled across this film. What this film has to offer isn't on the surface level, rather if you're like me, it stirs emotion and knowing from deep within. Listen "in-between" and you will find the voice or your ancestors, your guidance, your roots.
