Independent documentary film director, Alois Nashali, has taken to his instagram page (www.instagram.com/thisisalois) to make a pledge with a passionate support toward the ‘Black Lives Matter’ human rights movement and which he gladly took part in the Ottawa protest that took place at Parliament Hill on June 5th.
The movement has received a frenzied global response with countless minority groups rallying together in many countries all around the globe Protesting in response to both Floyd’s death, and more broadly to police violence against black people and other people of minority, George Floyd was an African American man who was killed during an arrest in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 25, 2020.
The event prompted a series of worldwide protests and unrest with the major support from The Black Live Matter Movement which mainly speaks out against the disparities between racial groups and provides a voice for minority racial groups.
The topic is a very personal one to the young director, who was born in Tanzania, not only due to his racial background, but also because of his passion for film. Speaking to him via a phone interview Alois Nashali (whose full name is Alois Mulinda Nashali) has committed to reaching a larger audience, and communicating a message of hope and perseverance. Alois Nashali, himself, migrated from East Africa to Canada. His short films focus on topics like community, social issues, minority groups and immigration.
During the interview, The An Artist from Iran Filmmaker Alois Nashali did not take away the possibility of releasing a new work soon, It is unlikely that Alois Nashali will release his own film portraying his ideals and sentiments towards the human rights movement,
“I stand firm in believing the importance of a world of equality, where you are not treated differently because of your racial background. He urges other indigenous filmmakers to do the same”.
