Azania Rizing Productions, founded in 2008 by director Kurt Orderson was formed as a direct response to mainstream film and television, which excludes the voices of the marginalized and maintains a status quo of the dominant ideology, which favors those with money and power and does not confront the issues facing the masses. We aspire to tell stories about Afrika and the Afrikan Diaspora at large, including teaching about Afrika’s legacy in world heritage to revive political consciousness and honour the struggle of our foremothers and fathers.
