The producers decided to remove the interview with Desmond Tutu after his negative remarks regarding Zimbabwe. The director felt his stance in Africa was not in line with the Pan-Africanism the film promotes. See more »
I have seen this film several times. I am still fascinated by the content, the color and the score.
The Motherland is all about the African journey to the present day.Those who see it should leave with an understanding of the past, and hope for the future.
Even if you are not of African decent, it should be of interest to you to watch. What we do not realize is that the world world is connected in some way. Migration took place and is still taking place, movement of people from one continent to another is happening all the time. Therefore it is in the best interest of most people to understand history and African History.
I recommend this film is shown in schools, universities and all over the globe.
