About this project
URBAN KRYPTONITE: "The Formidable Health Decline of African Diaspora Descendants Located in America” will be the first documentary of its’ kind that solely focuses on the nutritional and sociological factors that have quietly contributed to the demise in health of the Moorish People, Hebrew-Israelites, Black Muslims, Five-Percent Nation, Kemet and many other names that are associated with the so called African-Americans. At present there exist a great deal of bewilderment as to how we lead the country in major illnesses all the while accounting for only 12 percent of the nation’s actual population. Contrary to popular belief, enslaved Africans did not arrive to the shores of America as a sick nation. We were conditioned to be such. The result of the mental conditioning has led us down a road of early death, disease, broken homes, incarceration and psychological complacency.
For this documentary we will be traveling around the country to speak with some of the world's foremost intellectuals, scholars and savants on health and social issues. They will elucidate on topics such as but not limited to:
*The Mis-Education and Mental Programming process
*Maladroit Dependence on Doctors and Prescription Drugs
*Lack of general knowledge of our body parts and their functions
*The Meat, Dairy and Sugar Curse
*The use of Illicit Drugs and Alcohol as coping mechanisms
*Toxic Relationship Participation
*The Emergence of Religion and Loss of Spirituality
*Soul Food: The Survival Cuisine of those who were Enslaved
And much more!
Our goal here is to pinpoint and share factors that are correctable by each and everyone within the African decent community. Although the title refers to the so called African-American, this film can and should be watched by all ethnicities and backgrounds. The topics may be directed towards American blacks but these are issues that have a profound impact on other races as well.
This is an independent film that has not been financially backed by any major Hollywood movie studio. The featured guests that we will interview in this documentary are very well known and bring with them the potential to educate millions of viewers as witnessed by their large respective fan bases. Our minimum funding goal is $15,000 but ideally we would like to reach $30,000. All monies raised through kickstarter will be used for travel expenses to multiple cities for the film crew. Apart from travel expenses, the money will also be used for graphics, quality product manufacturing, color-correction, website creation and maintenance, high-definition filming tools, sound editing costs, audio equipment, hardware, software and general licensing for things such as footage, music, photos, etc. These things and many more are essential to ensure that a premium project is fulfilled.
We hope that you are as excited about this project as we are. There’s a first time for everything and we are the first to produce such a film. We encourage you to join us as we make documentary films history! By all means let your twitter, youtube, instagram and facebook friends know about this project. We welcome all support. No amount is too small. Let’s make it happen family, we need your assistance to reach this goal to get this project done!
Thanks in advance for your support!
