Directed by John Akomfrah | 1988

With Tania Rogers, Evans Oma Hunter, Frank Parkes

Black Audio Film Collective visionary John Akomfrah confronts postcolonial disillusionment with this poetic, multilayered work of experimental docufiction in which a British television reporter returns to her native Ghana for the first time since the 1966 coup that put an end to President Kwame Nkrumah’s dream of pan-African socialism. There she finds herself adrift in a “war zone of memories,” searching for a utopia that no longer exists while wrestling with the meaning of “home.”
