Ghana. 2017. 98 mins. English.
It’s the ‘80s in rural Ghana. Atswei is heavily pregnant and desperate to get to Ateke to deliver her baby. But when she and husband Boi miss the morning train, the only means of transport to the city, the hapless couple are left stranded in the blazing sun with only Boi’s ghetto blaster for encouragement. A madcap race against time follows in this colourful screwball comedy, with a wry but affection nod to Ghanaian traditions and gender dynamics. Accra-based band Worlasi provides the kinetic heartbeat to this impressive debut that illustrates Ghana’s vibrant contemporary film scene.
Followed by a post-screening discussion with director Peter Sedufia.
