It all started when…

Middle passage. Slave ship. Orishas. Mermaids. 

Through living ritual and stop motion animation, The Water Will Carry Us Home reveals the story of stolen Africans being thrown off the slave ship whilst sailing through the Middle Passage. Upon crashing in the waves, a phenomena happens when the presence of Yoruba Orishas dwelling in the water saves these spirits.

Trailer available above. Special requests to private view film for purposes may inquire Gabrielle Tesfaye at tesfayetra@gmail.com.
