Canada Film Week in Accra, Ghana

Making history by sharing Canadian stories and culture with foreign friends and global citizens
The High Commission of Canada to Ghana in collaboration with the Goethe Institut-Ghana will be making history in November by sharing Canadian stories and culture with foreign friends and global citizens. Canada Film Week in Accra, Ghana will be presenting Canadian short and feature films November 3 – 5, 2010. Some of the best of Canadian film production will be screened for the public at 7:30 p.m. nightly. Admission is free. More information is available here.
Canada and Ghana have a long history of excellent diplomatic relations but the relationship between our two countries goes beyond diplomacy. There are Canadians living and working in Ghana and literally thousands of Ghanaians studying, working and living in Canada. It is these people-to-people relationships that continue to solidify the very deep friendship between our two countries.
The Canadian High Commissioner to Ghana, HE Trudy Kernighan stated: “We are delighted to be collaborating with the National Screen Institute - Canada (NSI) to introduce Ghanaian friends and our international partners in Ghana to Canada through film. These popular feature films as well as the prize-winning short films represent some of the best that Canadian filmmakers have to offer.” Read more about how Canada Film Week came about in this online interview with the Canadian High Commissioner to Ghana, HE Trudy Kernighan.

Set during the height of the First World War, Passchendaele tells the story of Sergeant Michael Dunne (Paul Gross), a soldier who is brutally wounded in France and returns to Calgary emotionally and physically scarred. While in the military hospital in Calgary, he meets Sarah (Caroline Dhavernas), a mysterious and attractive nurse with whom he develops a passionate love. When Sarah's younger asthmatic brother David (Joe Dinicol) signs up to fight in Europe, Michael feels compelled to return to Europe to protect him. Michael and David, like thousands of Canadians, are sent to fight in the third battle of Ypres, a battle against impossible odds, commonly known as "Passchendaele".

Chand finds hope in her friendship with Rosa (Yanna McIntosh), a street-smart woman from Jamaica who works with Chand at a laundry factory. Rosa gives Chand a magical root and promises that it will make Rocky fall deeply in love with her. The experiment ends in a surreal parallel life that mirrors an Indian fable involving a King Cobra.
