Excellent film! A real eye-opener with amazing cinematography. The audience is taken on a journey around the world and presented with an array of beautiful images from Africa, to the Caribbean and many other places. 500 Years Later deals with many social issues affecting the African community in the diaspora & on the continent. It is very educational and should therefore be made available for all young people to watch as it deals with the global black experience like no other film. You can't help but be affected by this film. Not only does it lay out the problems affecting the global black community but it also lays out some hopes for the future.
