Nigerian director Toyin Ibrahim Adekeye’s cultural documentary ‘Bigger than Africa’ is set to launch on Netflix. The documentary will debut on the streamer on May 13.
“I hope it becomes a unifying documentary for all people of African descent regardless of their country,” Adekeye said of the film. “It uniquely tells the stories of our commonalities rather than our differences.”
“When the slave ships docked in North America, Brazil, and the Caribbean, hundreds of cultures, traditions, and religions landed with the Africans on board, one of which transcended slavery beyond imaginations and has survived to this day in the New World: the Yoruba culture, “Bigger Than Africa,” which follows the journey of the Africans from the ports of no return in West Africa to their final destinations,” the synopsis reads
‘Bigger than Africa’ was filmed in six countries, with research and interviews conducted in locations all over the world, including Brazil, the United States of America, Cuba, Trinidad and Tobago, and West Africa, where it all began.
