The film, which was produced and directed by Ben Schuder and Niko Philipdies, with executive producers Jack Madigan, Aaron McCreary and Amar’e Stoudemire, chronicles the African Hebrew Israelites, a community who migrated from Chicago to Israel in the late 1960s, and intertwines the story of four villagers to provide an in-depth and moving view into the community. The film made its world premiere Jan. 31,2014 at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival before continuing to other film festivals, and, eventually, a TV or cable broadcast premiere.
Tens of thousands of African and African American visitors to Israel come and go without an inkling of information that affirms their intimate links to this ancient land and its people.

I find joy and fulfillment in freely giving and receiving which creates a flow of Yah abundance in my life!
I am a whole soul, living in this whole kingdom, loving it with my whole heart, being a light unto this whole world!
I respect the earth and honor its infinite gifts; I listen quietly as it shares its secrets, reveals its wisdom and enhances my life!
Our wealth comes from our connection to Yah and one another!
The essence of our wealth is our spiritual currency. Don’t let anything impede its flow; keep the love going and coming!
Upon the mountain and under the heavens I declare unto Yah and His Holy creations, that I give honor and thanks and lift up the living savior which Yah has sent to save my soul, my people and the human family!!
When we speak truth, kind words, praises and thanks, we create a joyful, sweet sound in the universe and put a smile on Yah’s face!!
