Boneshaker | Frances Bodomo

Boneshaker is a film by Frances Bodomo which tells the story of a Ghanaian immigrant family that takes a road trip to a Pentecostal church in Louisiana to cure their violent daughter. There, the family encounters some challenges as they attempt to perform a traditional ritual away from home. A Ghanaian living in diaspora herself, filmmaker France Bodomo relates to the experience of immigrants. In the video below she mentions feelings of homelessness, landlessness and rootlessness which are often part of the immigration experience. The film was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2011, and is now an official selection for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
