"If you can clearly state and see what your vision is, you’re well on your way to seeing it come to life. A vision can #motivate you and keep you fired up."

Malcolm X


"Dare to invent the future! Everything that man can imagine, he is capable of creating"

Thomas Sankara


"Your self image is so powerful it unwittingly becomes your destiny. We want to see our lives dramatized on the screen as we are living it, the same as other people, the world over.

Oscar Micheaux


“Cinema is Magic, in the service of dreams. The word griot…is the word for what I do and the role that the filmmaker has in society… The griot is a messenger of one’s time, a visionary and the creator of the future."

Djibril Diop Mambety
