“My hope is that we all use our power to lift ourselves and each other, by practicing our immense abilities and gifts to zoom into the incredible close-ups that surround us everyday.”

A timeless, universal documentary filmed entirely in the lifts of Africa's tallest apartment building Ponte Towers in Johannesburg: 8 lifts, 400 flats and 4400 people. Like never before, Africa under one roof is a film not of containment but ultimately, one of liberation that continues to travel around the world stimulating dialogue about Africa and our common humanity.

The Power to Lift by Ingrid Martens
 
“When you hear voodoo you think crazy black folk. When you hear starvation you think Ethiopia. When you hear third world, you SEE Africa, right?  Award winning journalist Ingrid Martens's beautifully profound Ted Talk not only refreshingly tears to shreds our stereotypes of the vast continent but gets to the heart of the power within us all to view life from the "close up" - and the miracles that can be achieved with this tiny shift in perspective.”  Trish Malone
