Conversation with Eliciana Nascimiento about The Summer of Gods.

Eliciana's The Summer of Gods follows Lilly, a little Afro Brazilian girl who goes with her mom to visit her grandmother. Her grandmother, a spiritual healer, teaches Lilly of the importance of her roots through stories.
The film is beautifully made and sheds positive light on African descendants practicing their ancestors' spirituality. The little girl playing Lilly is adorable, and the relationships between Lilly and her mother, Lilly and her brother, Lilly and her grandma, are so realistic... so too is the relationship between Lilly and the Orishas.

A gem for African cultural continuity, this film is a must-see for all pan-Africans, all Africans and African Diaspora seeking a clean, positive connection/reconnection to African culture, African spirituality, African religion.

You may shed some tears. But they're the reparative kind, the kind that help you emote as you consider the magnitude of the task ahead of us, only to give you renewed strength as you see that you are not alone, you exist within a continuum of which we are all part, and your efforts are validated and cemented through the space that we all inhabit with our wills, strong a rock, vast and deep as the world of Yemaya herself.

So head over to, purchase the film, enjoy it, and embrace every tear that it pulls from your soul, let it be a part of your own rebirth.

Moni Tano is a pan african perspective on topics big and small, from hair to religion, to economics and so on. It is a small effort at parsing through the highly effective program of mental colonization that we have gone through for generations. We decolonize our minds so as to better represent ourselves as defined by a truly informed and truly critical 'us.'

Hafiz Farid's rare film that looks at the Darfur conflict through eyes of Darfur's people placing their experiences front and center without the celebrity fanfare that marked the Save Darfur Movement in the early 2000s. Darfur's experience is paralleled with the trauma and healing process of other survivors of genocide and horrific wars.
