The voice is the single most powerful human asset
8 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Our story Our voice' offers great insight to the issue of multi-cultural-ism. It really does highlight the possibilities for human kind to truly embrace globalisation. The right to a voice from the source rather than through the filter system of judgement is what this film manifests; and director's like Owen Alik Shahada are at the forefront of making no apology for using film to shout out loud and say 'one can speak for them self'. This film uses frank images in a way that drives the spoken word. It is a documentary with no pretentiousness.In a time when colonialism,albeit sometimes with well meaning intentions,still assumes that its engines know best. That is because it doesn't know that it doesn't know what is best. This film airs the views that have no voice in the political arena, and views that offer solutions that could set a blue print for the success of multi-cultural-ism. The sound-scapes are also used effectively to reinforce the themes. Halaqua Media the film makers have also lived up the their reputation of producing cinematographic gems in the making of this film.
