BLAFROKAN - Many Nations, One People


A repressed woman murders her domineering father, freeing herself to pursue her heart’s desire. Using a local folk magic called “root work”, she conjures a demon to aid her in creating the man of her dreams– but soon finds herself in a waking nightmare.

Blafrokan Reflections:

  • The Wake, a funerary rite and tradition? What do you know of its origin and purpose?
  • What do you know of root workers? Do you have negative, positive or neutral view of this indigenous spiritual tradition?
  • What are the consequences, if any of dabbling in spiritual practices without wisdom, knowledge, proper rites and respect for spiritual traditions?
  • What do you think the filmmaker was trying to convey and what did you take from the film?
