A release for all my unfocused strangeness
Abdul Ndadi is an animator from Ghana, and a graduate from the School of Visual Arts, NY class of 2013. He’s created an animation film entitled Orisha’s Journey (2014) which will be shown at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival in Japan (21st August 2014 - 25th August 2014)
Orisha’s Journey is a fantasy tale of a girl’s journey through the spirit world (‘Orisha’ denotes a spirit in Nigerian Yoruba cosmology), who must learn about the importance of remembering one’s roots. The film, set in a mysterious walking forest, explores the power of a child’s imagination and the deep meanings and manifestations of Africa.
The film is based on African folklore. I want to show another side to Africa besides safaris, so I explore different aspects of different countries around Africa in order to give the viewer a pan-African experience. It’s important to me that Africans feel that no matter where they’re from, they’re part of my film. In the West, there is not a lot of exposure to real Africans — most people only go as far as The Lion King. I want to take people farther, to create a deeper meaning. There is a word in Ghanaian: “Sankofa” – it means to return that which was lost. It is a symbol for not forgetting your roots and learning from the past. It is said that a tree without roots cannot stand. - Abdul Ndadi
RANDMAS = Random AND Modern African Style
New UK-based Nigerian label RANDMAS launched their new label with a bang earlier this month. If their new lookbook of psychedelic prints is a taster of what we can expect from them in the future, then there is a lot to be excited about.
I need everyone’s help. Please retweet, use the hasttags #atauideng #findataui in your tweets and grams. Please upload photos of her. And call the NYPD and Trump models with any information you have. Any conversations you’ve had recently with her. ATAUI is more than my muse. She is my little sister. I love her so much. Believe me when I say I will not recover if this star is not found. My heart will fail. Please help find my Two-Way. Thank you.

Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.
HE HAS ALSO STATED NOT TO PURCHASE THE T-SHIRTS THAT ARE BEING SOLD WITH HIS IMAGE BECAUSE HIM NOR THE TOWN OF FERGUSON WILL SEE THAT MONEY!
Just needs to be stated again!
“Not to the cops but away from the children protesting”
