The Burial of Kojo will make its world premiere on September 21 as part of the World Cinema Narrative Features program at the 2018 Urbanworld Film Festival.
Blitz also added when making the announcement on Twitter that a Q&A; will follow after the screening.
The film tells the story of two brothers: Kwabena and Kojo.
Kwabena seeks revenge on his brother after Kojo kills Kwabena’s bride in a car accident on the day of their wedding.
Kwabena then knocks Kojo unconscious; throwing him in a mine shaft to die.
Kojo’s wife and Detective Koomson race against the clock to find Kojo before it’s too late.
The Burial of Kojo is also inspired by the illegal small-scale gold mining industry in Ghana, often refrerred to as galamsey.
“Instead of centering the issues, I centered the people,
which is seldom done when Hollywood makes films about Africa,”
“Our objective was to capture the beauty, even when the circumstances weren’t beautiful.”
Blitz said while speaking to OkayAfrica back in October 2017.
