"They Will Carry Us" is a testimony to the power of collective creation in Detroit. Ava Ansari co-creates with interdisciplinary artist Halima Afi Cassells as she shares healing moments from her journey through motherhood, from home birth to the Mississippi River over the waters of Rafael Leafar's musical composition and her ceremonial dance with her daughters. Produced by Forgotten Networks TV, a project by Poetic Societies for the somatic, sonic, and scenic liberation of the oppressed bodies across the earth. Closer to the end, Nia, Halima's daughter, reads sections of the book they wrote together "Where do we come from?"
