The world stands on its head and can watch when on Saturday, 10 April 2021 at 7:00 pm at the HoF Royal Rendezvous in the virtual Central Kino KING BANSAH AND HIS DAUGHTER are our guests. And director Agnes Lisa Wegner, who received the GRANIT – Hof Documentary Film Award for her production at the last Hof International Film Festival, will give us insights into her work:
Katharina is an artist, feminist and graphic designer. One day she will follow in the footsteps of her father, Céphas Bansah. He is not only a master mechanic in Ludwigshafen, but also a tribal king in Ghana. How burdensome is the legacy? Can Ghana become a home for Katharina and where does she belong?
Agnes Lisa Wegner’s KING BANSAH AND HIS DAUGHTER “… breaks with many clichés in a surprising way … Complex themes such as identity and homeland are thus presented in an entertaining way for a larger audience.” (from the GRANIT jury’s statement by Angela Christlieb, Britta Schoening and Markus Mörth). The film is “… a plea for more tolerance and courage within our society to welcome diversity.” (BR).
Before the film, Kerstin Fröber, first chairwoman of the supporting association of the Grenzland-Filmtage Selb International Film Festival, gives tips about her festival once again.
The film and talk are available worldwide and free of charge. But of course, donation tickets with a freely selectable amount can be purchased. All proceeds go to the projects of King Bansah in Ghana. As always, many thanks to our Rendezvous partners Central Kino Hof, Rotary Club Hof and » Kino on Demand. Furthermore, we would like to thank the Hermann and Bertl Müller Foundation, who support us, among others, with the GRANIT – Hof Documentary Film Award.
