The film stems from the memory of my late grandmother who went by the name Allumuah [pronounced: ‘A-Loom-Wah’], meaning ‘leader’ in Nzima.


She was admired by many as an oral storyteller and a great community elder. Her mere example set the tone in why I came back home to her hometown of Ghana to create this film, in honor of her memory.


Runtime: 5" Minutes
