Unganisha by Chibuzo Okoye

A young dancer, Unganisha, sets out on a life-changing journey in search of the "source", a long-lost mother from five centuries past who is the connector of African dance. On this journey, Unganisha recounts a rollercoaster of past experiences that have shaped today's dance forms. Through Unganisha's eyes, we see an assortment of modern dance performances and go down a memory lane of stunning, nostalgic visuals. Salsa, Jazz, Tap, Afro-Cuban, Afro-Caribbean, Hip-hop, Step, Capoeira, and Samba, this journey is an exhilarating ride of discovery.
