FILM JOURNEY 2023

Documentary filmmaking has a new face and a new name, it's Abassi Okoro. Okoro is the latest in up and coming black independent filmmakers for you to keep your eye on. Specializing in cinematic documentary storytelling, a new genre that Okoro created and coined as, "Cinedocs", Abassi Okoro's style is socially expressive, colorfully creative and  cinematically mesmerizing. "No one gets excited about a documentary film." (laughs Okoro). "My goal is to change that. To make documentaries something you want to see. It should have all of the elements of traditional cinema. There's no reason why the audience shouldn't get excited about a documentary film, if done correctly." 

FILM JOURNEY 2024

Okoro's visual narrative is socially viable, speaking on topics that is socially relevant. "Racism is an important topic. So is Sexism, Religion and Black History. It's challenging for a filmmaker to tell these stories that typically go against the narrative of the mainstream. I challenge the status quo and that's always a risky endeavor regardless of whether it's film, music or literature."

LENSA WIRE 2024

 "I think "Theft" is what we've been waiting for. We've known this information but I think we've been unable to articulate it in a way because we're not sure what we're articulating. Does that make sense? Our piece of the bigger puzzle has always been hidden away by those who control the narrative.  Theft of The Black Gods is a culmination of every piece of information that has been gathered over three decades that we all knew but just didn't know what we knew, until now."
