A poetic and moving introduction to a study of black History.
BLACK SOUL is an exhilarating immersion into the heart of black culture via a whirlwind voyage through the defining moments of black history. As an elderly lady initiates her grandson into his past, a series of perpetually transforming images painted directly under the animation camera unfolds before our eyes. In a mesmerizing swirl of light and color, the boy traces his ancestry to mighty pharaohs, and to valiant kings whose praises are sung by a griot beneath the baobab tree. Suddenly, the beating of drums conjures forth the slave market and far-flung exile. At long last, rocked by the rhythms of gospel and jazz, the boy makes his way from the lush Caribbean to the snows of the Americas, as we hear the stirring words from the “I Have a Dream” speech by Martin Luther King, Jr.
