A New Voice of Social change
8 April 2007 | by (Ethiopia) – See all my reviews

I love Michael Moore, I loved the corporation. However these still represent "white" voices. Good white voices but white voices. And in a plural world, as the film says, there should be a multi-representation of through in all areas of people activity and subjects. Our Story Our Voice is another master piece from Owen Alik Shahadah who battles with a difficult political topic to produce a doc which has your eyes glued to the screen. I saw this film when it opened at PAFF and I had some popcorn, it was not a good idea. From the explosive montage at the beginning to the end, I found it difficult to have to reach out and put the popcorn in my mouth. The film required full engagement. It is very fast moving and loaded with content, quotes, music effects, narration, images, stock footage from amazing locations around the world. And the content is like everything you thought but never read in the White newspapers. This is not a racial film, it is a political film but it is interesting how race and ultimately the perspective are linked. I think had this very topic been done by Michael Moore or those other people it would be very different. Because they would be capturing an inescapable experience which is white. Nothing wrong with this as long as we understand the need for plurality in cinema and story telling. This film testifies to the need for truly independent media from oppressed groups.
