The African continent has always been a place that evokes a deep sense of wonder and fantasy. It is naturally diverse, with a vast array of people, cultures, and natural beauty. Being the home to ancient civilizations, it is considered the birthplace of humanity or the motherland. But could it also be the birthplace of style? Africans and their cultures are inspiring the aesthetic world today more than ever. From the runways of the world to the meccas of visual art, there is an undeniable presence of African influence and a growing number of African trendsetters. Bangaologia sets out to explore the raison dêtre behind the recent growth of the African aesthetic in the world, including from the most unexpected places.
Bangaologia travels from Angola to the US and Europe on a journey to discover why this mysterious African it factor called "banga" has been inspiring so many in and out of Africa, and how it is bringing the world closer to the Motherland of style.

Proclamation Punctuation is an enthralling fashion film centered on a fabulously fascinating woman reciting a short soliloquy paying homage to her love for using exclamation points in her missives. Periods are so period, where as an exclamation point livens up a sentence! There is simply nothing worse than a long dragged out sentence ending in an uninspiring dull dot! So when exclamation points are your philosophy on life, one must always keep it on the up beat!!
*Talkback with filmmakers will follow screening
