Ase

Synopsis:  

Dance film that celebrates the lives of enslaved Africans. As they are released from their daily work, they gather to prepare and participate in Sunday worship in solidarity with their Ancestors and for the Orishas (revered deities in the Yoruba religion). Ase gives us a glimpse into this awe-inspiring service and in turn pays homage to those slaves who managed through terrible adversity to conserve a piece of their heritage and identity in song and dance.
