Documentary: Orixa Ninu Ile
Orixa Ninu Ile is a documentary about Candomblé that takes viewers through Ile Axe Opo Afonja in Bahia to take a look at specific Orisha and their worship. This documentary truly is a gem, and I’ve been working on translating and adding subtitles.
The full documentary is about 30 minutes long. In order to translate the documentary, I’ve broken it into smaller parts. The documentary in its entirety takes a look at the cult of Obaluaye – including vestments, oriki, songs, and sacred dances.
Part 1 focuses mostly on how the physical space is divided at the Ile Axe Opo Afonja – between the sacred and profane.
