A new story of "Never was so much owed by so many to so few"
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 03/07/2014 16:38:52
This is not a "documentary" only. I would reccommend to buy this dvd for some beautiful photography of Africa, for an excellent editing that make the story flows at the right pace and rhythm, for its revelations about a rough subject ignored by all media. But that is not enough, there is a lot more. In the Shadow of the Sun reveals the truth about an untold reality of injustice, discrimination and cruelty against albinos in Tanzania. This a story of courage of so few people in a really dangerous enviroment that would be an example for so many living in theirs modern, peaceful and more "civilised" countries. Everyone could pay close attention to this story, even if you are not interested in albinism in Africa, because it is about humanity as human beings, and Humanity as Kindness, Compassion. The lower case for "humanity" as human beings is not a mistake: despite of the cruelty of human beings (for ignorance or greed), Humanity of the main characters, Josephat and Vedastus, is the only answer (and dignity is what they desperately ask for). Humanity is the true triumphant winner. The story is told with respect and sincerity through the life of Josephat, Vedastus and a lot of other albinos (A LOT of them are children) and succeed in representing this subject in the correct way and instigating a change hopefully in albinos lives in Africa and, in respect of their efforts, in our lives too.
Thanks to Josephat, Vedastus, Kabula, Harry Freeland and his team that told me a story of Humanity and Dignity that enriched me. I will tell this story to my two little sons when they grow up.
