Indlela Yokuphila: Soul's Journey (2023) Consultant "This beautiful film contributes to expanding ways to articulate an aspect of what contributes to our identity. Indlela Yokuphila is a gorgeous and thoughtful celebration of specific African spiritual values and their intersection with the wider world. Even though I am from a different ethnic group, as an African woman and filmmaker who has had history written for me, this film touched me because it invites the world to see me the way I see myself - as a person that comes from a rich, bedautiful heritage that everyone can learn from." - Tendayi
