Here’s an opportunity to watch the award wining short film, Life!, courtesy of Kuumba Media.
“Life!” is an emotionally moving story about Kweku who moves to the city with the hope of securing a better life for himself and his family back home. He faces several challenges and falls too many times till he’s pushed to the point of suicide.
The lead (played by untrained actor Daniel Kwame Frimpong) communicates so much with his looks, facial expressions and his ironic composure without uttering a single world throughout this film. We get to somehow share in his pain, understand his frustration and endure in his confusion with each step he takes. Maybe it’s because this a story many young adults on this side of world can relate to. But it is still a story that transcends beyond Africa.
