We produced this 38 minute documentary film about a high-school girl's journey from the Bronx to her father's palace in Ghana. We shot months of intimate cinematography in the Bronx and Ghana. We combined that verite footage with stop-motion animation and original music composed by Blitz The Ambassador. The project aired on primetime PBS series POV.
