Description: Work in Progress Seminar Series 2019 - Film Screening and Discussion

SYNOPSIS OF “THE FORGOTTEN KINGDOM? CHRONICLE OF THE NORTH...”
Naa Gbewa, a prince and cavalry man, came and established his empire in the area of modern- day Ghana, Burkina Faso and Togo. He was the first king of modern- day Ghana and the first to introduce chieftaincy as a system of government in this region. The documentary is about the roots of his empire, how it grew and finally fell apart. The main purpose of the project is to educate Ghanaians in the world, especially those from Northern Ghana about their connection to each other thereby promote peace and economic development in this region of Ghana.
