ATLANTA and JOHANNESBURG, Oct. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Robyn Stalson and Kevin Johns, creators of the spiritual animation series, and Rox Dare, Director of The Adventures of Zizwe, have won a prestigious Award of Recognition from The Accolade Global Film Festival. The webisode introduces a Zulu led mystic band of young women from across the world using ancient wisdom, rock n roll and indigenous magic.
Robyn’s’ vision was Super Soul Sunday hosts the X Men (women) said Kevin Johns. Zizwe has a cast of supporting spiritual characters researched from a pantheon of authentic legends of the indigenous peoples of the Earth. The headquarters of this group of Enchantresses is South Africa, in the African bush near the Cradle of Mankind.
“Eons ago, indigenous mythical goddesses gathered around Africa’s oldest and most cosmic tree, the Baobab. Their mystical granddaughters carry on that tradition. Their mission is to transform conflict through the spirit of Ubuntu (togetherness) by harnessing ancient wisdom, magical powers, and cool rock and ancestral music (didgeridoo, African drums, flutes, lead guitar). The young goddesses unite to solve mysteries, tackle terror, eliminate poaching, divert climate change, and heal plagues.
“We are extremely proud of the Accolade Team and Judges for their consideration and for understanding what we are trying to achieve with this production: “Cultural diversity is an economic strength,” said Robyn. “The series is futuristic and pragmatic for everyone, particularly minority youth. It is authentic Africa, beautiful, entertaining, and inspiring. In a time of equity concerns, climate change, poverty, and innovation, the Adventures show that America and the world communities, can solve any challenge, working together. (Ubuntu)”
