This is Truly Another Side of Africa

"As a film director, I was very impressed with the production and delivery style of the African Side movie. It was very informative and an eye opening picture. There were several exciting cultural and traditional things I didn't know about. Thank you very much for putting together such an excellent African film. I now know a lot more about the African continent and I hope to visit Africa sometime soon."

Thumbs up George!

Finally Positive Black Movies About Africa

"I really enjoyed watching the positive side about the Motherland...I just regret it wasn't longer! I think the last portion of this black movie deserved a bit more conversation about the African culture and also about African history. Look forward to part II of this very positive movement in African movie genre... this is truly a great service to spreading out a more balanced side of the Motherland."

Loved the African Culture and African Dancing

"Can't wait to see this African movie to learn more about my heritage, especially the African Music and traditional African Dance. The trailer is truly inspirational and left me hanging to see more of the  African history and the postive side of Africa.  I am really interested in the African culture and the African dancing...and hope to visit someday soon. I've always been a great fan and I've taken dancing classes my opinion these are new dancing steps!  I will surely enjoy showing them to the rest of the class."
