Motherland (Enat Hager) Reviews
I really loved this film and like 500 Years Later it is a MUST see, once in a lifetime type project.
There is so much to take in and absorb, it takes time, it is so informative, so educational, yet so simple. The photography is amazing, it has made those in the film so beautiful, that you just want to see more of them and hear more from them.
Congrats to the team.
If ever there was a film that could be called the greatest social African documentary this would be it. As never have I seen one body of work which chronicles in a cohesive way the collective history of African people in the Diaspora in context and with dignity. Not only does Motherland document it lays pathways for solutions to the crisis, the film takes responsibility for not only being a mirror on a problem but more than that. This is why it is more than a film. And interesting enough even as just a film it is an amazing piece of visual work, with cinematography rich in African culture, the techniques employed expand the visual expectation and build solid arguments beyond emotion but with full emotion and African aesthetic .
