Otherworldly Videos: A Seed of Hope – Baobab + Simphiwe Dana


I saw these two beautiful videos today, the French short film, Baobab, and South African singer Simphiwe Dana’s “Mayine.” While the videos may appear disheartening at first (and I do have questions about the former’s reason for the cutting down the tree, the depiction of violence in general, and the film’s meaning within a larger cultural context), there is some hope at the end of them.
