Sunday, January 27, “Sankofa”

Sankofa, an Akan word meaning “One must return to the past in order to move forward”
Mona, a contemporary African American model is on a shoot at the infamous slave forts in Ghana, West Africa. Spirits lingering in the dungeons that were used to detain enslaved Africans over a century earlier possess her. She becomes Shola, “house slave” on a sugar plantation; she is in love with Shango, a rebellious field slave and she idolizes Nunu, her surrogate mother. Shola too, learns rebellion when the master advances on her one too many times. After her trials, Shola returns to the present as Mona, deeply aware of her African roots.
