Director Blitz Bazawule in attendance for post-film Q&A!

The Cascade Festival of African Films is delighted to open their 30th anniversary festival with THE BURIAL OF KOJO, a dazzling modern-day fable from Ghana, and to welcome film director and renowned musician and hip-hop artist, Blitz Bazawule, to Portland to present his film.

Filled with magic realism, dramatic imagery and rich colors, and complemented by Bazawule’s striking music, the film tells the story of the tumultuous relationship between two brothers, Kojo and Kwabena. Narrated by Kojo’s prescient young daughter Esi, the film transports the audience to rural and urban parts of Ghana and other realms that exist between life and death.

Both screenings are free to the public, on a first-come, first-served basis, and there will be a Q&A with the director after both showings.
