Easily the most accomplished Ghanian film of the last decade and one of my favourites from 2019, Blitz Bazawule’s ‘The Burial of Kojo‘ will be screened as part of an #ARRAYMatinee Netflix watch party on Wednesday, May 13, at 8 PM or 1PM PST on Netflix.
Bazawule, a Guggenheim and TED fellow, will Join the #ARRAYMatinee screening conversation as part of the Netflix Watch Party.
‘The Burial Of Kojo’ meshes magical realism and familial angst and still finds space to demonstrate some socio-political awareness. It’s a story of a father haunted by his past and his daughter haunted by the future that awaits them. You can check out my full review here.
It stars Joseph Otsiman, Cynthia Dankwah, Kobina Amissah-Sam, Ama K. Abebrese among others.
Blitz ‘The Ambassador’ Bazawule’s ‘The Burial of Kojo’ was acquired by Ava Duvernay’s production company ARRAY (Array Releasing) for distribution in and has been available on Netflix United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

I also had a sweet conversation with one of the film’s leads; Joseph Otsiman. Check out what he had to say about his experience staring in the film and what it means to be an actor in Ghana here.
