My Rating

Movie Info

THE IGBO: JEWS OF NIGERIA? Several years ago, the Internet was introduced into the more rural parts of southeast Nigeria. As it has done for so many people around the world, it opened the eyes of a few young Igbo people and began answering some difficult questions of identity. For Shmuel (who was then called Sam), the nagging question he wanted answered was whether there was any truth to the long-told lore that the Igbo people were once Jews. He began by comparing Hebrew traditions to Igbo

"Re-emerging" can be pedestrian as filmmaking, though it remains interesting as long as it remains in Nigeria.

Re-emerging speaks for itself as an uplifting portrait of an exuberant subculture that doesn't just practice its faith - it revels in it.

Admirably, the film gives skeptics their say, however briefly. Yet in the face of the authenticity of Shmuel's faith, the evidence for or against the Judaic heritage of the Igbo is beside the point.
