((PKG)) PAN AFRICAN FILM AND ARTS FESTIVAL((Banner: Pan African Art))((Reporter/Camera: Elizabeth Lee))((Map: Los Angeles, California))((Henry Baba Osageyfo Colby, Jewelry Artist))We’re featuring New Guinea boar. ((NATS))((Ayuko Babu, Executive Director, Pan African Film and Arts Festival))As a result of the slave trade and colonization, African people are spread all over the planet. ((NATS))((Ayuko Babu, Executive Director, Pan African Film and Arts Festival))So, film, sculpture, fine art, jewelry, is all a reflection of the energy that we produce and it stimulates one or the other.
