Theophane is an urban, modern african man living in Port Novo, Benin Republic. A journalist by profession, he considers himself essentially aspiritual; until he is confronted by a dilemma. An unsolicited message from a seer commends him to appease the â€˜gods of his ancestorsâ€™ or face an uncertain future.Patinvohâ€™s dilemma is a metaphor for the spiritual conflict of the modern African man. Today, the modern African man must resolve his spirituality, essentially â€œchoosingâ€ between two cultures - that of his ancestors and that of the colonialists that introduced other religions like Islam and Christianity. This scenario is what many now recognize as perhaps the lasting legacy of colonialism - the loss of â€œspiritual identityâ€ of the African man. This confusion is perhaps most pronounced in the religious practices of our people. In Benin Republic, the people have artfully managed to combine their indigenous religion with what was left behind by the colonialist. Perhaps itâ€™s the urban educated elites, who must resolve and reconcile themselves to the reality of their cultural heritage. â€œOui VOODOOâ€ is a fact-based documentary that celebrates the richness of African culture and the conflict of spirituality of the African man.It is a special presentation of DVWORX Film/TV Consult and Roots News Agency
A hard hitting, thought provoking documentary film about African traditional gods and its criticisms by Christians. Before the introduction of Christanity and Islam in Nigeria, there were various African traditional gods which till today some believe are saints, just like in Christianity, people who distinguished themselves when they were alive. People pray through them to almighty God and their prayers are answered. This film is for anyone with interest in religion. Based on a popular deity called Ayelala at Benin city in Nigeria, looking at some of its bizarre work and the arguable protection that it gives to those who believe in it.
