Drexciya Film

The noted artist and filmmaker Kapwani Kiwanga is making a film with Drexciya as subject matter and would be interested in making contact with people with a view to interviewing them. So if you have been touched by or inspired by the Drexciya myth you can contact her through her website. She tells me she can meet with people in Europe but preferably in France and also in North America but preferably Canada. She has already begun her project and has had a period of filming and researching in Benin, West Africa. It’s fantastic to see Drexciya’s influence spreading out into other areas of the arts, the depth they brought to the presentation of their music will no doubt make them a rich source of inspiration for years to come. A short trailer of ‘Atlantide’ can be viewed at

Will it be based more on the myth of Drexciya or on the artists? Or both?!
