Citizen Kwame

February 10 @ 1:10 pm


A minimalist film about travel visas, set entirely in one compound. Kwame is an African man who wants to travel outside of his compound, but he must first get a visa from a white gatekeeper who controls movements in and out of the gate. It is only with the aid of a newly acquired European girlfriend that he is finally able to succeed. A clever and searing commentary on the privileges of Caucasian citizens who provide their time to work for NGOs assisting in the ‘development’ of Africa, the current inequities of international travel, and even more so, exposing the subtle but devious affect such have on the psyche of ‘third world’ citizens.
