'I know so much about the stars, yet I know so little about my own continent and how my people are connected to the sky.'
With these words astronomer Thebe Medupe embarks on a quest to reunite his science with the origins of celestial knowledge. His journey takes him to the ancestral lands of the Ju/'hoansi in Namibia, whose ancient creation myths link terrestrial mysteries with the movements of the stars; to the Dogon of Mali, whose night sky maps provide signposts on how to live on earth; and deep into the Sahara desert, where a cosmic clock attests to the African origins of astronomy.
A beautifully shot, densely layered meditation on the influence of the cosmos on our daily lives. What the critics are saying:
"...this immensely complex and rich subject matter is reduced to a bitty, superficial overview."- Barry Ronge, Sunday Times"...a very interesting, compelling film..."- Spacetoday.net"...the film failed in it's stated objective, of exploring ancient knowledge of the stars."- Ian Douglas, The Movie Site
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
