ctrp358 Examining an African Election

It was a political campaign and a presidential election upon which not only the future of a nation rested but also the inspiration and example for much of the continent.  Packed with emotion, with great highs and great lows, throughout the Ghanaian presidential election of 2008,  Jarreth Merz was there. In the streets, in the party offices, at the ralleys, on the road, and finally in the strong room, he takes us along to witness a very special and important democratic process.

During the film’s premier at the Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival, I had the chance to sit down with Jarreth and record this interview. Together we get into not only the idea behind the film but also the real characters and issues raised during the course of this film.

For more info go to the website anafricanelection.com and make sure to watch the fantastic trailer.

Flattr this!
