    Water Wahala – A critic’s review

    It is waking up to an African sun rise. It is the colorful butterflies dancing in the clear blue sky with rolling hills in the background. It is hope, carried in our hearts or in plastic or metallic buckets. To you and me, it is everyday and it is beautiful.

    To the backdrop of a haunting melody (which reminds me of traditional Malian folk music), the talented Brian Olaolu Wilson captures and conveys subtle yet powerful messages in a short burst, 1 minute and 33 seconds, of creativity. While I do not claim to understand the technical nuances of Brian’s chosen medium (film), one can clearly see that considerable effort has gone into bringing the characters to life. One proof of this is in his use of shadows. This adds depth and spatial awareness to the scenes. The facial expressions clearly show shock, anger and remorse. His use or rich colors and hues increase the visual appreciation of the short scenes. The combination of art and musical beauty immediately draws one into this wonderful little tale.

    This short animated film just works. It works on several levels; artistically, musically, while provoking food for thought. It works because we can relate to the story. The tussle at the water tap represents the never ending global struggle for scarce resources (water, land, oil and so on). This struggle is not always a direct result of color, clime or creed. The struggle brings out the best (creativity and progressive thinking) in some; while in others, it breeds nothing but war, strife and calamity. Unfortunately, all too often, the latter is the result in Africa. A continent blessed with unimaginable beauty and natural resources has no business being poor. The scene showing the short lived reconciliation between the two women was gripping. Just when you thought peace had returned, confusion returns to lay claim on concession. Africa is continually standing at the precipice of peace; wanton greed always resurfaces to destroy whatever gains have been made.

    The message in this film is that if we would only learned to tolerate each other, look out for each other, share with each other and plan for the future, then we will experience the peace and prosperity that we desperately need.

    I take this opportunity to celebrate creativity and talent. Well done Brian!
