Our Cultures' film sreening GHANA 'An African Election'
Tue 4 April 2017, 18:15 – 20:00 BST
Our Cultures would like to invite you for Jarreth Merz's political documentary ‘An African Election’ that exposes the never-before-seen, nitty-gritty of political electioneering in Africa.
In 2008, director Jarreth Merz returns to his boyhood home of Ghana to find himself. That all changes when he discovers a country churning with political, social and economic turmoil. Ghana is on the cusp of its presidential election and Merz pulls us with him into the political machine. Following key candidates for three months, he provides an insider's view into the lives of the Ghanaian people and the larger-than-life politicians who will do anything to win. The film beautifully captures the enduring pride of the Ghanaian people, and presents a window into the range of challenges they face.
'An African Election' is a powerful and suspenseful documentary, offering a unique story about the struggles of a third world democracy in the global eye.
