I just saw this film called 500 Years Later -- anyone heard of it? I'm a tough critic, but this is the best movie I've ever seen. It surpasses Roots and Sankofa in my opinion. It won best documentary at basically every black film festival in the world! It was written by youngster M.K. Asante, Jr. Here is the summary from the website: www.500yearslater.com

Crime, poor education, poverty, self-hatred, prison system, broken homes plague people of African decent globally Why?

Filmed in over twenty countries and on five continents, 500 Years Later is a compelling journey, infused with the spirit and music of liberation, that chronicles the struggle of a people from enslavement who continue to fight for the most essential human right - freedom.

Credits:
directed by Owen Alik Shahadah
written and produced by M.K. Asante, Jr.

Cast:
Molefi Kete Asante .... Himself
Maulana Karenga .... Himself
Trevor Marshall .... Himself
Dr. Kimani Nehusi .... Himself
Paul Robeson Jr. .... Himself
Dr. Francis Cress Welsing .... Herself

Roxie,
I don't think so. The website says that it's only available through the website.
