The short film “Kwaku Ananse” makes its World Premiere on February 12th at the 63rd Berlinale Film Festival in Germany, where it is competing for the Golden Bear Prize for Best Short Film. Written and directed by Ghanaian-American Akosua Adoma Owusu, it is a creative retelling of a West African fable about wisdom. Owusu puts her unique stamp on the story by weaving it with a semi-autobiographical thread that makes the story deeply personal.
