Filmmaker Gloria Rolando arrives US October 1996 for national tour with her films My Footsteps in Baragua and Forever present OGGUN. A videotape copy of OGGUN was presented to The Arthur Hall Collection by Chester King. We first saw this film at the Museum for African Art in New York during the Face of the Gods exhibition in 1994 and still find it a very sophistocated and moving document of Ogun in the New World.
