About: The Power Stone: A History of the Kwanyama Kingdom (DVD)

This documentary was produced by Mamokobo Video & Research with funding from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Finland, and directed by Andrew Botelle and Kelly Kowalski. The Power Stone: A History of the Kwanyama Kingdom tells the true story that follows the journey of a sacred stone belonging to the Kwanyama people of Northern Namibia and Southern Angola. Passed down from generation to generation, this sacred power stone has remained at the center of the Kwanyama Kingdom, until its disappearance after the murder of the last Kwanyama king, Mandume, in 1917. More than the incredible journey of the power stone, this documentary shows the story of an African Kingdom told by Kwanyma storytellers, musicians, poets and artist. Part One: “When We Were Kings” traces the stone’s migration through precolonial Africa and witnesses the rise and fall of the Kwanyama kingdom. Part Two: “Africa Gets Light and Security” examines the effects of colonialism on the kingdom and follows the stone’s secret journey to Europe during the war against Apartheid until its return home after Namibia’s independence in 1990. The music to The Power Stone: A History of the Kwanyama Kingdom was contributed by Jackson Kaujeua, Shawana Metiti and Nashima Nanghili.
