Netflix is now streaming Bigger than Africa, a documentary highlighting the Yoruba Culture by African filmmaker Toyin Ibrahim Adekeye. The doc “dives into how the culture tradition and the religion of the Yoruba’s of West Africa survived the transatlantic slave trade and remain the most prominent African culture in the New World.”

Here’s the description:

Bigger Than Africa documents the journey of enslaved Africans through the lens of these surviving West African cultures. This historical documentary takes you through 6 countries, Brazil, Cuba, Nigeria, Trinidad & Tobago, The United States and back to where it all began in West Africa. The well-researched documentary will expose the international audience to how Yoruba culture transcends continents and connects the Black diaspora.

“I am extremely excited that my first project was picked up by the global streaming network,” said the filmmaker in a statement. ‘This film provides a fresh and innovative perspective into the history of our ancestors that isn’t typically represented in mainstream Hollywood. My hope is for this film to become a unifying documentary for all people of African descent irrespective of their countries. It’s a film that uniquely tells the stories of our commonalities rather than our differences.

Debuting globally at several film festivals in 2018 including African Movie Academy Awards, Festivals International du Film Panafricain de Cannes, AFI World Peace Initiative Cannes 2019, Silicon Valley African Film Festival and more, where it had several wins and nominations.
