Heart Of Africa (With #Giveaway)


AVAILABLE NOW!

NOT RATED.


A Congolese man runs from a terrible accident and finds himself at a revolutionary camp, where he is told that he has a great destiny. He tries to escape and start a new life by going to another town, joining a new religion, and becoming a missionary. Ultimately, though, he finds himself back in the very place he had tried to leave. He must face his fears and his shame—but also his magnificent possibilities.

Heart of Africa is the first full-length, faith-based film to come out of the nascent Democratic Republic of Congo film movement. After decades of colonial oppression and civil war, the country's scars run deep. Cinema is emerging as a cathartic new medium, and director Tshoper Kabambi is a leader of a new kind of revolution: one driven by stories that he hopes will heal the hearts of his people and the DR Congo.





REVIEW:
What a film deep in African culture. It was so beautiful to watch and learn about some of it. Having never been to Africa, the scenery was incredible to me.
The story itself is hard for me to review. There were times I felt lost and confused by what was happening. I understood the oppression of the people, it was evident from the start. I also understood this one mans' need to break free from his people. Finding his way on a missionary life became exactly what he needed, he just did not know it at that time.
The bond that forms between him and that man are enough to help him face his life and do the right thing for his past. Everyone learns one day that running from your life is never the answer, just as this man learned here.
I won't lie to you and say this movie is amazing and will get accolades galore. Not everyone will enjoy it. It is a movie that will be great for some and not so great for others. I enjoyed it and the hubby did not. It really depends on the individual.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
