Kwaku Ananse  Ghana/Mexico/USA / 2013 / 26 mins

Kwaku Ananse is an intensely personal project, which draws upon the rich mythology of Ghana. The short film combines semi-autobiographical elements with the tale of Kwaku Ananse, a trickster in West African stories, who appears as both spider and man. The fable is combined with the story of a young outsider named Nyan Koronhwea attending her estranged father's funeral. When she arrives at the funeral, she retreats to the woods in search for her father.
