This is an important film that shows how many of the cultural heritages of Africa has been stolen and taken out of the Continent. It is an important story told using comedy. Touted as one of the most anticipated films to come out of a Ghana/Nigerian collaboration in terms of cast and crew, A country called Ghana premiered on the world stage early May 2024 In Accra, Ghana. The film is described by one reviewer as a comedic exploration of Ghanaian culture and the resistance to western influences. In a small Ghanaian village, Kwadwo Nkansah (Lilwin) happens to be the only literate person in the town, which sees an intrusion of foreigners.  The foreign mission led by Ramsey Noauh tries to take something precious from the land back to their country .Will their mission to take this precious asset from the Ghanaian village be successful? With themes of patriotism and cultural preservation, one might see it as a call to action urging Africans to remember their roots and protect their heritage.
