#Movies – Oya: Rise of the Orishas (Interesting Concept)

My friend Red (In4Red45ive) brought this to my attention.  While not a mainstream “superhero” film Oya:  Rise of the Orishas seems to be an interpretation of the superhero genre utilizing African mythology much like the larger comic book companies use Norse and Greek Mythology to create a set of heroes and villains for comic and movie usage.  While this may not have a large audience or the multi-million dollar budget it may be worth a look to see the results.
