In the Footsteps of our Ancestors
An Atlanta charter school 8th-grade class travels to Ghana, Africa to explore and connect with their ancestral roots. Through seeing life outside of America, they discover a new world inside themselves.
The documentary is told through the voice and eyes of the KIPP WAYS scholars in order to capture their authentic experience as they visited Ghanaian historical landmarks, schools and remnants of the slave trade. They were unprepared for the intense emotions many of them had while touring Elmina Castle, where slaves were held captive prior to boarding ships for Middle Passage, or Slave River, where the captives took their last bath on African soil.
From inside one of Bolivia’s notorious prisons, a cocaine worker, a drug mule, and his little sister question the world’s relationship with cocaine.
COCAINE PRISON begins in Bolivia’s notorious San Sebastian gaol, a virtual citadel inside a crumbling old colonial house and follows the interlinked lives of Hernan, a drug mule who dreams of being a drug-boss, his younger sister, Daisy, who struggles to escape the lure to traffic cocaine and Hernan’s friend, Mario, a cocaine worker fighting for freedom. In a country where the cocaine trade isn’t ruled by violence, these three small fish dispel the gun-toting ʻNarcoʼ myth and put into perspective the drug war and the lives of the ‘disposable’ people.
