An African Election
Followed by a Q&A with director Jarreth Merz
+ Film Africa LIVE! with Carmen Souza
With unprecedented access to political personalities and processes, Swiss-Ghanaian filmmaker Jarreth Merz’s award-winning film gets under the skin of the closely contested 2008 Ghanaian electoral race, which captivated observers worldwide. Topical viewing in light of the recent unexpected death of Ghana’s President John Atta Mills ahead of elections scheduled for this December, this documentary, described as “engagingly volatile” by the New York Times, is a heady yet astute celebration of democracy at work in Africa.
