The Power Stone

You can now watch Kelly Kowalski's The Power Stone on-line. This true story follows the journey of a sacred stone belonging to the Kwanyama people of northern Namibia and southern Angola. Passed down from generation to generation, this sacred stone disappeared after the death of the last king in 1917 but was rediscovered on European shores 80 years later. The meaning of the stone and the history of an African kingdom is told by Kwanyama storytellers, musicians, poets and artist. The documentary was recently awarded The Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Afrykamera Film Festival over a decade after its making in 1999! You can watch clips of the documentary here:
