The Use of Film


The Origins Centre contains explanatory films at key moments in the narrative to ensure the connectivity
of ideas.
 

Left: the final compilation film; Right: The opening title for the three-hour documentary series made in conjunction with the museum.

Apart from the use of films at strategic points in the narrative, the Origins Centre has also commissioned a three-hour documentary series to disseminate information about the Centre and to attract visitors. This was entitled The Art of God and was broadcast on SABC in 2008. It was produced and directed by Guy Spiller with Francis Gerard as executive producer.

The San have the earliest genetic signature. This was produced and directed by Guy Spiller.At the Origins Centre in Johannesburg there is an interactive multi-screen presentation showing how the South African motto "People who are different join together" comes from a San Bushman saying penned in the 1860s: !Ke E: /Xarra //Ke. The interactive exercise shows how many South Africans have San Bushman genes, like Nelson Mandela.
