Film launch in Accra

Had a great launch of The Witches of Gambaga at the British Council in Accra this morning. For those weren’t able to catch it, I’ll be showing the documentary at Ashesi University College, North Labone, (Lecture hall 2 in Building 2) at 4.15pm on Thu 17th of February. Then again on Friday 18th February at 6pm at the University of Ghana at the Institute of African Studies, Nketia Lecture Hall.

The audience’s reaction was fascinating. The men were strangely silent, while many women talked about incidents in their lives when they had been accused of witchcraft. One woman, a scientist, was labelled a ‘witch’ after she gave birth to physically challenged child. The question is – now that the film has moved people – what do we do now? All suggestions appreciated…

    I missed the documentary in Accra and read somewhere that it will be shown at Univ. Cape Coast. Please: date? Place? Will there be other opportunities to see the documentary in Feb or March? Myself and my group are interested in raising awareness of the situation. Thank you. Sr. Mary E. Bednarek,csc
