                  Regarding the making of “Passage,”

                  Filmmaker David Massey says, “My love

                  for history led me to watch a

                  documentary by Dr. Henry Louis Gates,

                  Jr., that explored the interaction of Black

                  African cultures. This historical

                  information revealed some unfamiliar

                  aspects about the relationship among

                  African civilizations on the western part of

                  the continent that were new to me. My

                  hope with ‘Passage’ is to provide a film

                  that allows an audience to take a journey

                  into a historical setting that’s different

                  from their contemporary world. At the

                  same time, I hope the audience can find

                  a way to

                  connect with the film’s characters and the
