Art Lovers, we have a rare opportunity to support the production of a documentary that will share with a world a new perspective on Africa, Ghana, and the tremendously talented people who live on our shores. Filmmaker, Taneisha Berg has produced a film highlighting the story of a gifted, aspiring opera singer from Abidjan who is presently living and studying in Ghana.
To help bring this inspiring story to audiences internationally, Ms Berg is holding a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds necessary. Click below to see a trailer of the upcoming film.
Let's all give her support by making a small (or large) contribution to the Kickstarter campaign.
Wishing the project much success!! - Melissa
