Ava DuVernay’s #ARRAYMatinee to Screen Blitz Bazawule’s Critically-Acclaimed THE BURIAL OF KOJO on Wednesday, May 13, 1PM PST on Netflix.
The Burial of Kojo Teaser Trailer:
Through a magical realist lens, THE BURIAL OF KOJO follows the story of Esi, as she recounts her childhood and the tumultuous relationship between her father, Kojo and her uncle, Kwabena. Directed by Guggenheim and TED fellow, music composer and musician Samuel “Blitz” Bazawule, the film chronicles the tale of two brothers through the gifted eyes of a young girl who transports the audience to the beautiful lands of Ghana and other worlds that exist between life and death.
Bazawule will join the #ARRAYMatinee screening conversation on Netflix Watch Party on Wednesday, May 13, 1pm PST.
Born from a newspaper article and a Kickstarter campaign, Bazawule skillfully captures the beauty of a family, even when the circumstances aren’t beautiful. THE BURIAL OF KOJO is an essential human story of courage and survival. THE BURIAL OF KOJO is a 2019 Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) Official Selection and 2018 Urbanworld Film Festival Best Narrative Feature Winner.
