Maangamizi - The ancient one

Mhando, M. (2001) Maangamizi - The ancient one. [Motion Picture] [Creative Output]


MAANGAMIZI - THE ANCIENT ONE is a story about three women; a doctor, her patient and the ancient and mysterious ancestor who brings them together. It is a tale of healing through love, compassion and forgiveness. It is the spiritual journey of the soul. It is a story that seeks to reclaim the connection between Africa and her Diaspora. It is a story that dares to represent the histories of two continents as it peels away layers upon layers of pain and ultimately brings healing of the soul.
