2 November 2017


Particular focus will be on women’s stories and films from Ghana to mark her 60th independence anniversary at on-going London's Film Africa 2017 festival which opened on Friday, October 27.

The Ghana @ 60 strand features the European premiere of Keteke, the debut feature from Peter Sedufia, a kinetic road trip with a killer soundtrack from Accra-based band, Worlasi; the UK premiere of Leila Djansi’s epic tale about the Atlantic slave trade, I Sing of a Well; and a rare chance to catch one of Ghana’s most celebrated works, Kukurantumi – Road to Accra by King Ampaw, who will be in attendance.

Screenings will show at six venues: Rich Mix, BFI Southbank, Ritzy Brixton, Ciné Lumière, Bernie Grant Arts Centre and the South London Gallery – until Sunday 5 November.

Ghana @ 60 will also include an exclusive live performance from RedRed, the exciting collaboration between Budapest based DJ/Producer Elo Morton, of the Hungarian reggae collective Irie Maffia, and MOBO nominated musician, filmmaker and pioneer of Ghana’s contemporary Hiplife music genre, M3NSA, also one half of enigmatic rap duo FOKN BOIS.
