“… the world is infinitely more mysterious and paradoxical than I ever could have imagined.”

               -- Lionel Friedberg, Forever in my Veins, How Film Led Me to the Mysterious World of the African Shaman


We talk about Lionel Friedberg’s amazing life and global journey

  • Growing up under South African apartheid
  • How inexplicable predictions by an “old, withered, half-blind” Zambian woman, a Shaman, have come to pass exactly as she had seen it
  • Examples
    • Foretold he would meet “the man closest to the most evil man who has ever lived”, he later interviewed Hitler’s personal pilot
    • His life-threatening illness was predicted, came to pass, and is now in remission after an South African ritual cleansing ceremony
