Warriors: Spiritually Engaged
In 1994 a small Los Angeles based film crew traveled to East Africa to begin shooting the film production of the award-winning film, MAANGAMIZI - THE ANCIENT ONE. WARRIORS: SPIRITUALLY ENGAGED was written with the intent to provide information to those seeking to know more about the Maangamizi experience: what led up to it and how it came about? It is a personal first-hand narrative of the journey told through the eyes of its author, screenwriter and film producer Queenae Taylor Mulvihill. Utilizing vivid, reflective and introspective excerpts from her personal journals, the struggles of her personal journey are shared with stark honesty. It is not merely a behind-the scenes film chronology of events. Its unique quality is the paranormal and interactive play of ancient Spirits whom the film process awakened. This team of filmmakers dared to go to a land rooted in spirits (active spirits) that for eons have grown accustomed to operating in a tenuous climate of adversity and confrontation.
