500 Years Later represents a fresh, unapologetic African narrative on the crisis and legacy of enslavement. The film not only embodies the story of the African Diaspora, but also carries the culture of our people in its subtext.

The single most compelling factor in the making of 500 Years Later was an overwhelming desire to produce a single body of work that summoned up, chronicled and addressed the critical issues facing Africans globally — one which spoke in positive reaffirming terms to African people in the Diaspora.
